There is this module called "camptocamp/postfix(", for which I would like to submit fix/feature.

I have been using Puppet at work for last couple of months but I am making changes in ready-made environment where I can "vagrant provision" to see my changes but here I am trying to test stand-alone module.

I am confuse on how to place the question but I am trying to find out is that how can i setup the environment so I can checkout postfix module, apply the fix, test it and push the branch for review.

It would be great if you could point me to blogs, tutorials, or books to contributing to Puppet forge modules.

The TL;DR answer is to fork their module on github, pull it down, run the tests (usually bundle install && bundle rake spec), make your changes, add spec tests to test your changes, and then submit a pull request..

I'll see what more specific documentation I can track down for you.

Here are some links from the 'puppet community' site..
