2.5 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.

devopera/dorepos — version 0.9.2 Jun 24th 2014


Checkout and update repositories, optionally using Devopera public-key infrastructure (PKI)



  • SELinux port handling with docommon::seport


  • added non-standard port handling to installapp


  • replaced nested $repo with $repo_X vars to handle defaults properly


  • getrepo doesn't automatically force submodules on to their master branch, but installapp would if its $repo were not overridden


  • stopped forcing permissions by default on checked out shell scripts to +x, because git stores exec permissions in the repo


  • dorepos::installapp can now install apps with their own cron tasks. By default install_crontabs = false, but it can be set using a resource collector or resource default if you have some kind of cron/automate profile.


  • by default, when checking out a repo with submodules, put all submodules on to their master branch


  • added symlinkdir feature to allow installed repos to put a symlink in another named folder, such as the user's home directory


  • git pull now does a git submodule update too


  • Changed \; to \; as puppet recognised former as incorrect escaping


Setup dorepos, initially with an empty list of repositories (no repos checked out)

class { 'dorepos' :
  user => 'web',
  user_git_name => 'devopera',
  user_git_email => '',
  require => [Class['dopki'], Class['dopki::sshagentadd']],

After setup, checkout a repo

dorepos::getrepo { 'devopera-docommon-puppet-repo':
  user => 'web',
  provider => 'git',
  path => '/var/www/git/',
  source => '',
  require => [Class['dorepos'], File['/var/www/git/']],
