CERN extensions for puppet

This is a collection of some CERN-specific puppet extensions, that don't belong in any other particular module. Almost certainly not applicable externally.

Hardware vendor lookup

Consult the CERN hardware database to find the vendor (or more accurately, the company that is responsible for maintenance).

$vendor = cern_hwvendor()

Egroup expansion

Expand CERN egroups in manifests.

Rerurns an array of usernames following the expansion of an egroup. Three arguments must be specified. The first is the egroup name. The second is format parameter, e.g. %u@CERN.CH. The third is true or false depending if you want to recurse egroups. Example: egroupexpand('ai-admins','%u@CERN.CH',true) will return an array ['straylen@CERN.CH','mccance@CERN.CH']

Load class if exists

Loads a class if the class is available.
