      This adds support for 'http' and 'https' URLS as source attributes to the file resource.

      Since the checksum metadata is not available from the URL, applying a file resource with an http/s source will always be detected as a content change. This can be avoided by specifying the {{checksum}} and {{checksum_value}} explicitly, or using {{mtime}} as the checksum.

    Description

      Lots and lots of folks want to be able to do this:

      file { 
          "/tmp/example.txt":
              source => 'http://example.com/example.txt'
      }
      

      This would be good to support; obviously the metadata for the HTTP URI is much less available than via puppet file serving, but this would make a lot of people very, very happy.
