Description

With Fedora 17 using ruby-1.9.3, an update to puppet-2.7, which has improved support for ruby-1.9, is required. Note that ruby-1.9 is not fully supported in the puppet-2.7 series. Where possible, patches from the next upstream release branch will be backported to improve ruby-1.9 compatibility.

Also note that there will likely be issues when connecting to a puppet-2.6 master. This is unavoidable for the moment. Normally all Fedora and EPEL branches are kept in sync to avoid this problem. At this time, a decision to move all branches to 2.7 has not been made.

This update obsoletes puppet-2.6.16, which fixed several security issues recently found in puppet related to filebucket functionality. For full details, refer to the upstream release notes :

http://projects.puppetlabs.com/projects/1/wiki/Release_Notes#2.7.13

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
