When creating Node definitions / manifests. Whats the best way to do this. Would you use a ISE and then upload the manifests to the puppet master or use a form of source control (GIT) and push the files to the puppet master.

Hope this isn;t a stupid question, just try to get my head around the best practices etc.

Use VCS(Git) for module/site manifest and your master subscribe to that. Refer to common community practice such as using role, profile, r10k and control-repo. Use puppet module generate <your-module> to create a basic scaffolding if you need to create custom module.
