ryan-lane commented Jun 12, 2014 does not reference grains_dirs. There's no simple way to load extra grains for masterless salt without this.

@ryan-lane ryan-lane changed the title from grains_dir is not a valid configuration option to grains_dirs is not a valid configuration option Jun 13, 2014

Seems if you set module_dirs to a location and have _grains in it, you can load extra grains, but this is a really ugly way to do things, especially since there's a documented option for adding additional grains.

Include grains_dirs in loader
It is unclear to me why this was missing to begin with. This does
correctly load grains specified by grains_dirs in a minion config in
my testing.

Closes saltstack#13436

That was a documented configuration option with nothing wired to it so far as I could detect. I have modified the loader to include it.
