So all these releases are actually supported? Looking at GitHub, it
doesn't look like they received much maintenance, e.g. no bugfix release
for 3.3.x since November 6, 2013.

I'm bringing this up because I wanted to use execute method of
Puppet::Util::Execution but it's been introduced in 3.4, but I guess if
we expect some user to run any of Puppet releases with our code, I'll
just work around it somehow.

Thanks for explanation,
