      Description

      Puppet Version: All
      Puppet Server Version: All
      OS Name/Version: All

      Compilation of the puppet catalog should not fail if there is a missing artifact that is sourced by a file resource via the source parameter being set to puppet:///....

      In contrast, sourcing the file from http:// will not fail the entire catalog compilation.

      This can be worked around by using sourceselect => 'all' but the default behavior of completely failing the compilation if the artifact is not present on the server seems incorrect to me.

      Desired Behavior:

      As much of the catalog as is viable should be applied regardless of whether or not the file is present on the server.

      Actual Behavior:

      The catalog fails to compile.
