given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their

wcooley/rpm_gpgkey — version 0.1.0 Jun 2nd 2014



This provides the defined type rpm_gpgkey, for installing GPG keys for RPM.

Unlike Yum, RHN/Spacewalk client does not automatically import GPG keys, so it is necessary to do so outside of RHN client.

Note that it does not currently manage the RPM GPG key file itself.


$epel6key = '/etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-EPEL-6'

rpm_gpgkey { 'epel-6':
  keyid => '0608b895',
  path => $epel6key,

file { $epel6key:
  source => 'puppet:///xxx/RPM-GPG-KEY-EPEL-6',

File[$epel6key] -> Rpm_gpgkey['epel-6']
