Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: puppet-common

libshadow-ruby1.8 should not be required by puppet-common because the puppetmaster doesn't need to modify shadow passwords.  

Instead the libshadow-ruby1.8 dependency should only be required by the puppet package (which is the client).

Affected version:
The affects puppet-common-2.6.1-0ubuntu1 and possibly other versions.

My understanding is that the adduser package should not be removed from the dependencys list because puppet uses it to add the "puppet" user if the user is missing.

** Affects: puppet (Ubuntu)
     Importance: Undecided
