comment When will Red Hat fully support & ship with python 2.7
Yes I agree there is some learning curve, but having been around for a while is not only a bad thing for an OS either, considering how many bug fixes are already merged in there, and the amount of documented support issues on the Internet and in the Red Hat Customer portal. Besides, RHEL have really long life cycles. That said, I'd consider RHEL 7 too, you have to learn systemd at some point.

comment YUM installs outdated software
you can build these packages from src rpm:s (and dependencies) and install them alongside with your other versions, however since RHEL 5 first released 7yrs ago, you should check if you could instead aquire a RHEL6 box in stead (or even RHEL7).

comment Weird syslog order
This happened on a box of mine running fedora, it turned out that rsyslog had crashed, but journald did keep logs which it did forward to rsyslog once it started, resulting in old messages got mixed with new. This was in fedora 20 though.

comment Programmatically adding two lines to crontab
The cron.d directories exist to solve issues like that. You can find a lot of *.d folders under /etc, and it makes life easier using them. I Agree with Kevin , this is best practice. And BTW crontabs they're (typically) stored uncer /var/spool/cron.

comment Creating a resource only once with Puppet
Hello! Why do you create the resource several times if you need it only once? I don't know your whole code, but would consider putting the generic stuff like the creation of that folder in a separate class, then import the class where needed thenRequire the directory resource.

OK then it should just work, unless there were syntax errors in the iptables rule to add,or if the save command was run with insufficient perms.
