Nothing is planned so far. 

In order to have it, we should : 
- define what is the need ( if possible, explain why this isn't covered
by existing shared initiatives such as smolt.org, hardware4linux, etc,
etc )
- find a software for that, wit the usual criteria ( free, packaged, not
a pain to maintain, without catastrophic security record, among other )
- create a package if it doesn't exist, have it uploaded
- setup a puppet module for that
- deploy it

As the first question do not requires any specific technical skill, I
guess anybody can answer : 
"what is the exact need that is not fulfilled by existing system"
