Message of the day

This is a simple Puppet module to manage the Message of the day on unix operating systems.

This is Ryan's fork of Jeff McCune's work. Code will most likely be ported upstream once a few rounds of functionality are built and tested. It could also potentially replace the puppetlabs-motd module so please offer feedback now!
