I am not sure if there is a good way to manage git repos on server using puppet. Basically, if i was to do it via bash commands, it would be:

cd -gitdir-
git init --bare

I want to set everything up so that the team can push to the server. Thanks a lot!

How about this?

Say you've got a variable $reponame, maybe inside a defined type if you want to manage multiple repos:

exec { "init_repo_$reponame":
    command => "/usr/bin/git init --bare /path/to/repos/$reponame",
    creates => "/path/to/repos/$reponame",
