Armatures Project Workshop / Social Hour
It takes you to make Puppet awesome. Puppet Armatures are proposals to enhance and add features to Puppet or other parts of the Puppet ecosystem. This community-focused process improves openness and transparency for both Puppet Labs-funded and contributor efforts.

Armatures are a great way to influence the future direction of Puppet, and provide a unique opportunity to collaborate directly with Puppet developers to design and implement the improvements and new work you care most about, and to rally support from the puppet community.

Join us for discussion of proposals moving through the process, and bring your ideas for new Armatures.
