I don't think so, and everything you need to install Puppet open-source on a RedHat machine can be found here:

Optional channel is for devel packages only, so you do not need it for puppet install. You do how ever need to register with RHN or you will not be able to use yum to install anything

subscription-manager register --username <username> --password <password>  --auto-attach
