>>> (The role/profile/tech pattern of Puppet modules is one attempt to provide guidance around how and when modules can reach outside of their own boundaries.  If you’re not yet familiar with this pattern, do check it out.  A “myapp” profile might be justified to handle bridging both the “myapp” tech module and the sudo module.)

heh I love Gary's style -

"Everything we do here is meant to make things easier to debug when it’s 3am and things aren’t working. Any asshole can do crazy shit in Puppet, but a seasoned sysadmin writes their code for ease of debugging during 3am pages."
