    I propose deletion of the configs on the following rationales:

    1) Too obscure. As a percentage of the population, no one uses Puppet.

    2) Almost impossible to verify the facts. Can a significant fraction of the population hack into wikimedia and verify the obscure corners of their config?

    3) No original research on wikipedia. This is way too self referential to be "encyclopedic"

    4) Generic lack of notability. A blog-like /. post does not count as a cite. Show me the page of the New York Times citing this.
