      The way we were setting our source of randomness for CLI commands was silently broken. Consequently invocations of puppetserver gem, puppetserver irb, etc should be 15-30% faster to start up. Service starting and reloading should see similar improvements as well as some marginal improvements to top end performance, especially in environments with limited sources of entropy.

      It should be easier to build puppetserver outside our network now (not 100% easy but slightly improved)

      We used to ship an old deprecated version of facter with the puppetserver package (it should have been ignore and was completely unnecessary)

      Description

      There were several notable items that went into Puppet Server as maint work in the lead up to the July 2019 releases. This is a tracking ticket to get them into docs' backlog.

      They are:

      • The way we were setting our source of randomness for CLI commands was silently broken. Consequently invocations of puppetserver gem, puppetserver irb, etc should be 15-30% faster to start up. Service starting and reloading should see similar improvements as well as some marginal improvements to top end performance, especially in environments with limited sources of entropy.

      ^ this is the main thing

      But also two minor fixups:

      • It should be easier to build puppetserver outside our network now (not 100% easy but slightly improved)
      • We used to ship an old deprecated version of facter with the puppetserver package (it should have been ignore and was completely unnecessary)
