We use "masterless" puppet, deployed using gitolite post-receive hooks. The
most useful clues I found are here.
We had to join the dots ourselves. Works for us so far, but it's only about six
months old. We don't have lots of servers or very exacting requirements, just a
inclination against the pull orthodoxy and the freedom to experiment. Can't
comment about memory footprint, except it's not been a problem for us. (On the
other hand I am not that enamoured with Puppet's DSL design, I might prefer to
avoid it if I could.)
