Installs puppet and optionally applies a manifest inside the chroot. You can also have it copy your puppet configuration into the image so it is readily available once the image is booted.

Keep in mind that when applying a manifest, the system is in a chrooted environment. This can prevent daemons from running properly (e.g. listening to ports), they will also need to be shut down gracefully (which bootstrap-vz cannot do) before unmounting the volume. It is advisable to avoid starting any daemons inside the chroot at all.
