Hello, excellent article Raphaël, I am looking to do something similar in my company to manage the configurations of our clients, I see that it works well as an initial template, but what happens later when you already have your manifests? This is something that made me very curious and I'm going to try it! Any suggestions would be welcome! :)

As for keeping your manifests in proper shape and following good practices, have a look at puppet-lint. See for example my article on cleaning up Puppet code, which mentions it:
