      ...
      '--tags' allows you to specify what portions of a configuration you want
      to apply. Puppet elements are tagged with all of the class or definition
      names that contain them, and you can use the 'tags' flag to specify one
      of these names, causing only configuration elements contained within
      that class or definition to be applied. This is very useful when you are
      testing new configurations – for instance, if you are just starting to
      manage 'ntpd', you would put all of the new elements into an 'ntpd'
      class, and call puppet with '--tags ntpd', which would only apply that
      small portion of the configuration during your testing, rather than
      applying the whole thing.

      Desired Behavior:

      Add a section describing --skip_tags option.

      Actual Behavior:

      See above
