The 'puppet storeconfigs export' command only looks into [main] for storeconfig settings, it should at a minimum check [master] which some would argue is the proper stanza for storeconfig settings.

At a minimum it should be documented in the command help or man page that 'puppet storeconfigs export' expects the settings to be in [main].

These docs https://docs.puppetlabs.com/puppetdb/2.2/migrate.html just need to point out the section in puppet.conf, doesn't matter what people think is correct here - the behaviour is ingrained in Puppet and I just don't see us changing that from this end of the tooling anyway. Better to document it and leave it alone, the tool is a one use only primarily and will be disappearing eventually anyway.

ActiveRecord is going in Puppet 4, I doubt we'll get around to fixing this before that happens and we release a version without this facility. So closing for now.
