The user resource does not appear to have an attribute to control the warndays number for a given user. How do sysadmins typically control this number with puppet?

Hi btoohey, I am not very sure why user resource do not provide an attribute to set warndays but there are other simple ways to perform same using linux inbuilt commands like chage. This system command should be wrapped in puppet exec resource. Also, after user resource you can notify exec resource to have warndays set.

If any resource is lacking a feature I think this is the simpler way to get it through.
