If you wan't to include some additional modules like Redis you quickly will be burried with Puppet modules conflicts.
Almost everyone include build-essential and git-core and in this case the lasr ot the puppet module will fail.
So your puppet module should respect all resources that was declared by previous modules.

How to achive this:
I found good example at puppet-rvm module:

if ! defined(Package['build-essential'])      { package { 'build-essential':      ensure => installed } }


By doing so your module will be more reliable.
