4.4 quality score

We run a couple of automated
scans to help you access a
module's quality. Each module is
given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their
code and documentation and
modules are also checked for
malware using VirusTotal.

Please note, the information below
is for guidance only and neither of
these methods should be considered
an endorsement by Puppet.

The acceptance tests by default use vagrant and vargrant-libvirtd so ensure they are working or provide beaker configuration for your own hypervisor.

This example mutates the virtualbox images from puppetlabs into ones suitable for libvirt.

vagrant plugin install vagrant-mutate
vagrant mutate libvirt
vagrant box repackage virtualbox libvirt 0
vagrant box add puppetlabs/centos-6.6-64-nocm ./
bundle install
BEAKER_debug=yes bundle exec rspec spec/acceptance
# or with docker
BEAKER_debug=yes BEAKER_setfile=spec/acceptance/nodesets/docker.yml bundle exec rspec spec/acceptance
