I don't like the lack of array-based exec (it uses %x{cmd arg arg}, which is `cmd arg arg`, which could lead to shell escapes) but it seems self-contained (i.e. "arg" only ever comes from system output). I think the tool looks very fragile as it depends strongly on the output format of various system tools, so it may become a pain for backporting if that ever happens. Since it's mostly just a puppet dep, I think this will be okay. +1

facter build-depends on ruby-pkg-tools, which is not in main.

(if ruby-pkg-tools is promoted to main, the Recommends: on svn-buildpackage should be dropped from that package, as it pulls in a stack of other perl stuff we don't need)

Recently-uploaded facter no longer depends on ruby-pkg-tools, so I think it's safe to close that task.
