2023-03-03: Content & Tooling Team Status Update

Hey there

We have been working hard on a couple of projects lately and it seems like they are coming to a conclusion.


After much work and sweat poured onto SQLServer by jordanbreen28, we finally have a functional running CI for the module, as well as full support for Sql Server 2022. A release is coming very soon, so stay tuned to our Forge page for an update, or skip the wait and check the latest changes in our GitHub repo


On our tooling side, our engineer GSPatton has also made some outstanding effort into developing the necessary code to allow our Puppet Development Kit to support RHEL 9 systems. Similar to our SQLserver announcement, this update should be available soon with the next PDK release.


We are happy to announce that puppet-lint 3.2 has been released. Special thanks to our friends at Vox for helping with coordination and community member mmckinst for donating two fantastic plugins. For more details on this release check out the changelog.

Module syntax updates

Our syntax update project seems to be coming to a conclusion. For those unaware, our newest version of our agent, Puppet 8, is coming very soon. And in preparation to it, we have been working on a series of syntax updates for all of our supported modules, to make sure they were up to date with the new changes and requirements coming with the new version. Many of these updates will be present with the next batch of releases.

Finally, we would like to extend a special thanks to all the community members that offered their insights and feedback when reviewing our Syntax update PRs. Thank you, smortex, bastelfreak, ekohl and SimonHoenscheid for your contributions to helping keep our modules healthy.
