Currently trying to setup a roles/profile/hiera infrastructure, but I keep having issues with the ordering of my modules.

    include profiles::web

class profiles::base {

class {"::profiles::base::packages":}
class {"::profiles::base::welcome":}
class {"::profiles::base::ntp":}
class {"::profiles::base::services":}

 -> Class['profiles::base::services']

    contain profiles::web
    Class['profiles::base'] -> Class['profiles::web']

you will need to change your class profiles::base either to use contain instead declare a class.

notify {"Applying profiles::base": }

# Operating system configuration ...
