      Description

      The portage package provider does not respect versioning of packages, so one can't define specific versions of packages to install via puppet agent.

      As a result, on every run the puppet agent tries to install a specific version when another not defined version is installed, but effectively does only ensure that the package is installed via 

      emerge example/package
      

      Desired should be that the agent installs the defined version via 

      emerge =example/package-1.2.3-r4
