We are using Puppet to manage the configuration for VMs for our development and 
production Galaxy instances.  We would like to be able to specify tool shed 
tools and their revisions and have Puppet ensure that they are installed.  Our 
Puppet code makes use of the "install_tool_shed_repositories.py" script and a 
script based on that which checks to see whether a particular tool and revision 
is installed.

We are finding that if we don't specify the latest revision of a tool that the 
"install_tool_shed_repositories.py" script fails.  Is this what others 

I know other sites are doing configuration management with Ansible.  What 
approach are these sites taking for ensuring tools are installed or are these 
sites doing the tool installations outside of configuration management?
