The tool itself does not need root, but the setuptools and easy_install are
extremely common python packages and those need to be installed using root
or you can use virtualenv but it's beyond the scope of this thread to
explain that. you can google virtualenv if you can't / don't want to
install packages under root.
It does not make any change to your system. it just makes some checks like
how recent was the last puppet run, are you running your own puppetmaster
or not, are you using the shared project space or not. the checks are
mentioned in README.md as well.
