Puppet’s modules team is made up of expert Puppet developers and maintain high quality Supported modules. But there’s a lot more to managing a piece of technology than knowing how to write code to configure it. Sometimes knowing the idiomatic usage patterns is just as important as knowing how to manage the proper configuration file.
That’s where the domain experts come into play. Those who use our Supported modules and the technology stacks they manage are often those best suited to know where to go with the module’s development. The Trusted Contributors program empowers these experts to make a difference with partial ownership of the modules in which they have expertise.
Our modules team is always there to facilitate good Puppet code and architect high quality design patterns, but now our Trusted Contributors can help provide some of the vision.
