      Description

      The file face is described as Retrieve and store files in a filebucket. The filebucket command is described as Store and retrieve files in a filebucket.

      In puppet help output these are shown right after one another. It isn't clear which one a user should use. In reality they will have a very difficult time getting file to behave in a reasonable manner, whereas filebucket has some clear documentation.

      We need to deprecate file and direct users at filebucket.
