apt:builddep

Install the build depends of a specified package.

apt::builddep { "glusterfs-server": }

    version => '3.0.3',

}

Add an apt pin for a certain release.

apt::pin { "karmic": priority => 700 }
apt::pin { "karmic-updates": priority => 700 }
apt::pin { "karmic-security": priority => 700 }

apt::ppa

Add a ppa repository using add-apt-repository. Somewhat experimental.

apt::ppa { "ppa:drizzle-developers/ppa": }

apt::release

Set the default apt release. Useful when using repositories like Debian unstable in Ubuntu.

apt::release { "karmic": }

apt::source

Add an apt source to /etc/apt/sources.list.d/.

  location          => "http://debian.mirror.iweb.ca/debian/",
  release           => "unstable",
  repos             => "main contrib non-free",
  required_packages => "debian-keyring debian-archive-keyring",
  key               => "55BE302B",
