[openstack-dev] [puppet] Push Mitaka beta tag

So is it implied that a version "8.0.0b1" of a puppet module works
with the "8.0.0b1" of it's parent project ?

This has some implications, it means there are expectations that
puppet-openstack is able to keep up with upstream changes throughout
the cycle.
We've gotten pretty good at following trunk with the myriad of CI but
some changes are more challenging than others.

Would there be times where the puppet module's tagged release would
lag behind upstream (say, a couple days because we need to merge new
things) and if so, does tagging lose some of it's value ?
The liberty puppet modules were released quite a while after liberty
went stable.
