FAQ
Hi,

From the puppet module tool documentation, I note that it is possible to specify an alternate repository to install modules from (http://docs.puppetlabs.com/puppet/2.7/reference/modules_installing.html#installing-from-another-module-repository).

Other than some unresolved newsgroup questions and http://projects.puppetlabs.com/issues/5033, I can't find any information on how to set up an alternative repository.

Am I missing something, or is this option just for future use?

    Ryan provided a response a while back, and the ticket is probably the
    best place to comment on it.

    Hi,

    The link doesn't work for me but I see some posts from Ryan about hosting
    local forges. I'll focus on the ticket for that.

    My question was more: "if there is no current support for local forges,
    what is the --module_repository switch for?". Can you point it at something
    less than a fully functional forge? Does a simple directory structure,
    which mimcs the layout of the forge's archives, behind a web server do the
    trick?

    Yeah, he will have much better insight about the plans.
    My question was more: "if there is no current support for local forges, what

    than a fully functional forge? Does a simple directory structure, which

    No, the server needs to return metadata about the modules. The flag at
    the moment is only useful for internal development testing.
