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.

is for guidance only and neither of
these methods should be considered
an endorsement by Puppet.
