For the three distro releases we currently test on
Ubuntu Trusty: 2.0.2
CentOS7: 2.4.0
Fedora 23 (not actually used just yet, but is being worked on): 2.4.0

If we enable cloud archive it looks like we would have access to 2.4.0
on Trusty. Historically we haven't used the cloud archive because it was
broken. At least libvirt and mongodb did not function well enough to
gate against. That may no longer be the case and is something we could
consider adding to jobs, but we would have to be careful to avoid the
same problems we have had in the past.
