When creating a new module with 'puppet module generate', the resulting module that is created resides in the 'author-modulename' directory. Should be just 'modulename' with the author details being in the metadata to be consistent with what modules look like when they are downloaded from the forge.

In addition, this requires an extra step before you can even use the module, which is to move it to the 'modulename' directory anyway, as puppet won't be able to find the class when you try to use it otherwise.
