Subject Puppet version and upgrade potential
Date Tue, 04 Jun 2013 07:55:33 GMT

I was wondering whether there is anything in the Ambari roadmap about upgrading the Puppet
version that the Ambari Agent uses from 2.7 to 3.x.

Puppet 3.x offers more built-in control structures and abstractions as well as better syntax
We've found that with 2.7 we've had to define functions in Ruby even for trivial concepts
that are no longer necessary thanks to puppet 3.x built-in functionality.

Is there any interest in making this upgrade? I believe that 3.x should allow for reducing
the Ambari puppet code-base thus making its maintenance easier and development easier/faster.

Just as a note, I mentioned that 3.x is more rigid/clearer syntax-wise and that presents an
issue with the use of the dash '-'. That means that some-identifier is no longer a valid identifier
and needs to be replaced with some_identifier. Given the naming policy followed in Ambari,
that might be a bit of a hustle to go through but at least it would ensure meeting the puppet
standard and make it hopefully future-proof.

Thank you.

Kind Regards,
