How about we reduce to 3.3, 3.4, 3.8 and 4?  We would remove  3.6 and
3.7 which would reduce the number of jobs by a third  The goal of
keeping the others was to ensure that if/when we are able to install
fuel-library without our version of puppet that a user could use
whatever version their environment has. There were some changes
between 3.3 and 3.4 (if I remember correctly) so we should keep
checking that as it's also the oldest version supported by the
upstream puppet openstack modules.  I also think 3.3 is the version
that ships with 14.04.  Additionally we used 3.4 in fuel 7 and below
so we should keep those around.
