I would recommend using the archive module , It is designed to interact with a remote(or local), compressed file, and extract it into the chosen location.

The above example is a good way to show using an exec to manage it for you, but the puppet-archive module has some nice features built into it. There is also the 'camptocamp' archive module available as well.

when I install it, it looks for other dependencies. is that how it works?

If you use `puppet module install puppet/archive`, dependencies will be installed for you. Also there is effort underway to merge the camptocamp and voxpupuli (puppet) archive modules, with voxpupuli's version being the end result, so `puppet/archive` is the way to go IMO.
