Custom group providers for Puppet


At Portland State University we had a need for managing local group membership on Ubuntu, FreeBSD and Solaris, but we don't manage local users. That is, we needed group providers with feature manages_members. The default group providers in puppet weren't set up for this so we wrote some custom stuff. This is it.
