Here's what I advise in training classes:

1) Start with puppetlabs/ namespace modules.

2) If you don't find a puppetlabs/ module then you have to know a little
bit about the groups/individuals within the community who have a good rep
for putting out quality modules and identify their namespace. I'll not
favor anyone by mentioning any names here.

3) Lastly I look at the last release date and number of downloads. I want
something both widely used and showing some indication of active
development. If the repo has a "Project URL" that points to GH etc that can
be a nice thing to inspect as well.

The above determines which ones I'll download for further review.

Hope that helps. BTW, there's a lot work going into the Forge to improve
the above heuristic. Ryan's your guy. :)
