9 Released under the Apache 2.0 licence
10
11 Usage:
12 ------
13
14 If you wanted a /etc/motd file that listed all the major modules
15 on the machine. And that would be maintained automatically even
16 if you just remove the include lines for other modules you could
17 use code like below, a sample /etc/motd would be:
18
19 <pre>
20 Puppet modules on this server:
21
22 -- Apache
23 -- MySQL
24 </pre>
25
26 Local sysadmins can also append to the file by just editing /etc/motd.local
27 their changes will be incorporated into the puppet managed motd.
28
29 <pre>
30 # class to setup basic motd, include on all nodes
31 class motd {
32 include concat::setup
33 $motd = "/etc/motd"
34
35 concat{$motd,
36 owner => root,
37 group => root,
38 mode => 644
39 }
40
41 concat::fragment{"motd_header":
42 target => $motd,
43 content => "\nPuppet modules on this server:\n\n",
44 order => 01,
45 }
46
47 # local users on the machine can append to motd by just creating
48 # /etc/motd.local
49 concat::fragment{"motd_local":
50 target => $motd,
51 ensure => "/etc/motd.local",
52 order => 15
53 }
54 }
55
56 # used by other modules to register themselves in the motd
57 define motd::register($content="", $order=10) {
58 if $content == "" {
59 $body = $name
60 } else {
61 $body = $content
62 }
63
64 concat::fragment{"motd_fragment_$name":
65 target => "/etc/motd",
66 content => " -- $body\n"
67 }
68 }
69
70 # a sample apache module
71 class apache {
72 include apache::install, apache::config, apache::service
73
74 motd::register{"Apache": }
75 }
76 </pre>

78 Known Issues:
79 -------------
80 * In 0.24.8 you will see inintended notifies, if you build a file
81 in a run, the next run will also see it as changed. This is due
82 to how 0.24.8 does the purging of unhandled files, this is improved
83 in 0.25.x and we cannot work around it in our code.
84
85 Contributors:
86 -------------
87 **Paul Elliot**
88
89 * Provided 0.24.8 support, shell warnings and empty file creation support.
90
91 **Chad Netzer**
92
93 * Various patches to improve safety of file operations
94 * Symlink support
95
96 **David Schmitt**
97
98 * Patch to remove hard coded paths relying on OS path
99 * Patch to use file{} to copy the resulting file to the final destination. This means Puppet client will show diffs and that hopefully we can change file ownerships now
