OK further research yields that Debian is not updating Sid due to 
feature freeze for Testing.  However, Mathisain notes this:

On the other hand, the master packaging branch at
yields a working set of puppet 3.0.2 debs, they're just not tagged with
a debian release. Feel free to use that until we can upload to sid.

Can we see this imported to 13.04?
