Code manager setup - pulling strange modules directory

I have setup PE 2016.1.2.0 with code manager. I followed the online documentation

Everything seems to work fine except:

In each of my environments under /etc/puppetlabs/code/environments (e.g. ..../dev, .../production, etc.) there is a modules directory with several modules like concat, firewall, mysql, etc. Those modules are not in my control repo. When I create a new file (or directory other than modules) in my environments/environmentname (e.g. .../environments/dev) directory in my git repo then do a puppet-code deploy dev -w, it pulls those files and directories down fine. But if I put something in the modules directory in my git repo, then do a puppet-code deploy dev -w, it ignores what is in the git repo in the modules directory.

Where did this modules directory come from and how do I get rid of/alter it with puppe-code?

Do you have Puppetfile in your control repo? Must have been define in there.

If you do have a Puppetfile with the needed modules listed I believe the behavior is to only create a modules directory with the specified modules in the Puppetfile checked out.

If you want to have 'static' modules that are included inside your control repo ( we imbed both the roles and profiles modules inside the control repo) you can update the environment.conf to include another module path in addition to the modules folder in the /etc/puppetlabs/code/environments/$environment path

Here we have out role and profile modules under the site directory structure ```

List of directories Puppet will read modules from

modulepath = ./site:./modules:$basemodulepath ```
