    We started by decoupling Puppet from Facter as much as we could, introducing the possibility of having multiple Facter backends. While Puppet would use the default Facter implementation when running on its own, external users would be able to define and pass their own Facter implementation when initializing Puppet, similar to how puppetserver configures Puppet to use its JRuby-compliant HTTP client.
