I only came across their repository after I sent you the original mail earlier today, so I haven't tried it yet.  My main concern would be whether they end up putting everything in the same place: in the "learning Puppet" VM, for example, they appear to drop everything into /etc/puppetlabs/puppet instead of just /etc/puppet.  I guess I could just try this on a clean VM and see, though; it may be to do with their Enterprise offering which I think is what's in that VM.

I'd also note that their repository only includes Fedora, RHEL 5 and RHEL 6; i.e., none of the older EL releases are covered.  I don't know how important that is these days (I happen to be on CentOS 5 and CentOS 6 so it would be fine for me personally).
