given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their
code and documentation and
modules are also checked for

To disable default values for incoming_chmod and outgoing_chmod, and do not add empty values to the resulting config, set both values to false

include rsync::server
rsync::server::module { 'repo':
  path           => $base,
  incoming_chmod => false,
  outgoing_chmod => false,
  require        => File[$base],
}

Configuring via Hiera

rsync::put, rsync::get, and rsync::server::module resources can be configured using Hiera hashes. For example:

rsync::server::modules:
  myrepo:
    path: /mypath
    incoming_chmod: false
    outgoing_chmod: false
  myotherrepo:
    path: /otherpath
    read_only: false
