  class{ 'git':
    sources_manage  => true,
    sources_repo    => 'ppa:git-core/ppa',
    sources_ensure  => present,
    package_ensure  => latest,
    package_name    => 'git',
  }
Parameters
  • sources_manage: Controls the upstream source management feature. The default is false.
  • sources_repo: Defines the upstream source repository. The default value is OS dependent.
  • sources_ensure: Sets the ensure parameter passed to the upstream source repo repository. The default is present.
  • package_ensure: Sets the ensure parameter passed to the package. The default is latest.

 user_name  => 'Alice Alic',
 user_email => 'alice@xyz.com',
}
