Is there any way I can add my support to that ticket?

Thanks Nan. A few more questions, if you don't mind:
What's the effect of the runinterval on the expiration date? If I set
the runinterval to 14 days, can I then expect a cached catalog to
expire 14 days after compiled? Does the catalog expiration affect how
often it pulls a new compiled catalog from the puppet master? For
example: If node01 has a cached catalog that was compiled on
02/23/2012, expires on 03/08/2012 and the client is back on the
network with the puppet master again on 02/26/2012 does the client
pull a new catalog that would then expire on 03/11/2012?
