I really haven't been maintaining this for years Behrang, which is why I
set it to open maintainer and have tried to encourage various people over
the years. I should probably just remove myself as I'm not being a
maintainer in any useful sense.

I'm no longer using MacPorts at a large scale, and am somewhat ashamed to
say I've jumped ship to Homebrew for my personal Mac software needs, which
are pretty minimal these days as I do all my development in Linux vagrant
boxes. I'm not a huge fan of Homebrew (did we really need another port
system?) but it's what most of my co-workers use, so I'm following the herd.

I can't imagine it's a very difficult port, but you're the first person to
nag about it in a long time, and there obviously isn't a huge pent-up

The Mac pkgs for Puppet that we distributed at Puppet Labs are pretty good
these days, and are my first goto for Puppet on OS X.

However I'm happy to dredge through my memory and give someone a hand
bootstrapping themselves into being the new maintainer and moving this onto
Puppet 3.x.
