quick PuppetMaster Service Script for gem installed puppet set-up

On easy rubygem-way `gem install puppet` installation method for Puppet doesn't get you the *nix platforms service script... so here is one allowing you to perform Start||Stop||Restart||Status service task for puppetmaster.
  • Save the file below as '/etc/init.d/puppetmaster'
    $ sudo curl -L -o /etc/init.d/puppetmaster
  • and turn on its eXecutable bit
    $ sudo chmod +x /etc/init.d/puppetmaster
  • Now you can use it as
    $ service puppetmaster status
