HP-UX error messages

If you come across error messages like this following from HP-UX client nodes,

2013-08-21T08:51:57-0400 error: /update_bins/packages/'$(novapkg)': You must supply a method for determining the name of existing packages e.g. use the standard library generic package_method 
2013-08-21T08:51:58-0400 notice: R: Failed updating Cfengine binaries, should revert to old version

Please realise that it is from CFEngine update policy. The current bundled policy does not support HP-UX well. We would encourage you to completely disable all promises (regarding automatic update of CFEngine packages) by simply adding !hpux class to these lines;

stopped_cfprocs.!windows::
!am_policy_hub.!windows::

to the following;

stopped_cfprocs.!windows.!hpux::
!am_policy_hub.!windows.!hpux::

In the meantime, we will work on adding HP-UX support to "body package_method u_generic" so you won't need to touch anything in the near future.
