3.8 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.

Pointless Symlink for Puppet

A soft link is a symbolic link that we don't care where it points to as long as it exists.

You can specify a fall back value, to create the symbolic link, if it currently does not exist.


softlink { '/company/application/rails/current':
  fallback => '/company/application/rails/releases/00000000000000'

The fall back file is auto-required.
