related to puppet in wheezy. In this version, the puppet report format
is now correctly reported as version 3.

advisory: as of this time there is no fix for
CVE-2013-4761 and the package is not affected by

For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
version 2.7.23-1~

For the testing distribution (jessie) and the unstable distribution (sid),
