      Description

      https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/puppet-users/2wOLKZ2SokQ

      To duplicate, on an EL system (I used EL7) install `python-pip` then run `puppet apply -d pip.pp` with the code below in pip.pp

      package { 's3cmd':
        ensure   => present,
        provider => pip,
      

      Error

      Error: Could not set 'present' on ensure: Could not locate the pip command.
      

      Fix:
      The code is looking for `python-pip` as the binary when osfamily is 'RedHat' which is incorrect. Confirmed by symlinking /usr/bin/python-pip -> /usr/bin/pip and then it worked.
