      Description

      Yum repos without a baseurl and with a mirrorlist are broken in 3.5. Here is the syntax for such a yum repo:

      yumrepo { 'epel':
        descr       => 'Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux $releasever - $basearch',
        baseurl     => absent,
        mirrorlist  => 'https://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/metalink?repo=epel-$releasever&arch=$basearch',
        enabled     => 1,
        gpgcheck   => 1,
        gpgkey      => 'file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-EPEL-6',
      }
      

      The error response is:

      Thu Apr 03 18:22:17 -0700 2014 Puppet (err): Failed to apply catalog: Parameter baseurl failed on Yumrepo[epel]: Must be a valid URL
      Wrapped exception:
      Must be a valid URL
      

      Works perfectly in all previous versions. Furthermore, documentation says absent is a valid value:

      http://docs.puppetlabs.com/references/latest/type.html#yumrepo

      baseurl
      (Property: This attribute represents concrete state on the target system.)

      The URL for this repository. Set this to absent to remove it from the file completely.

      Valid values are absent. Values can match /.*/.
