Hi Everybody,

So I'm working on a workstation_policies module that will basically set a
ton of gconf keys.

I think I have everything figured out except for a clean way to throw a
long legal banner into an exec for gconf.

This should give an idea of what I thought would work per my interpretation
of the exec resource type docs:
(Using single quotes in variable to preserve line breaks, using double
quotes in the exec so that the variable is interpreted, etc)

class workstation_policies() {

   $legal_banner =


Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod
tempor incididunt
ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud

# Turn on and enforce the contents of the GDM legal banner.
   exec { 'gconftool-2 --set --type=boolean
/apps/gdm/simple-greeter/banner_message_enable true':
     cwd => '/var/lib/puppet',
     path => ['/bin', '/usr/bin', '/sbin', '/usr/sbin'],
     unless => 'gconftool-2 --get
/apps/gdm/simple-greeter/banner_message_enable | grep true',
     user => 'gdm'

   exec { "gconftool-2 --set --type=string
/apps/gdm/simple-greeter/banner_message_text "$legal_banner"":
     cwd => '/var/lib/puppet',
     path => ['/usr/bin'],
     unless => 'gconftool-2 --get
/apps/gdm/simple-greeter/banner_message_text | grep AUTHORIZED',
     user => 'gdm'

As it is now, I'll get a catalog compilation error like the one below:

Error: Could not retrieve catalog from remote server: Error 400 on SERVER:
Syntax error at 'legal_banner'; expected '}' at
/etc/puppet/modules/beta/workstation_policies/manifests/init.pp:65 on node
