Puppet-driven local group modification capabilities for Linux gpasswd

This is a module that enhances the native group type on systems supporting gpasswd to allow for the manipulation of group members.

Specifically, it adds the :manages_members attribute to the native Puppet group type. No alterations to your group code are required!


group { 'test':
  members => ['foo','bar','baz']
