comment Ubuntu: How to decrypt home directory, swap (basically everything) without reinstalling?
Yes - although history and such things will be lost while you are doing it, and if you have to re-login half way through then you won't have access to customisations in eg .bashrc, you will just have the system defaults. But when you copy all the files back into /home then it will all be restored.

The encrypted home directory in Ubuntu uses ecryptfs which does encrypt each file individually.

comment Booting Linux - disable need for required login
Are you saying "should a user be able to login for to our server without a username and password?". If so, do you mean use svn without a username and password? Ssh in without a username and password? Or still using usernames but not passwords?

+1 for the ~/.ssh/config - this makes life so much easier.

comment Adding a yum repo to puppet before doing anything else
Puppet uses a declarative language, so it does not worry about the order of things in the file. Your first paragraph is wrong I'm afraid. The correct way to do this is to use the require keyword, which you have done in the second part.
