Wow I didn’t realise puppet3 was being deprecated, is anyone actually using puppet4?

I would hope that the openstack puppet modules would support puppet3 for a while still, at lest until the next ubuntu LTS is out else we would get to the stage where the openstack  release supports Xenial but the corresponding puppet module would not? (Xenial has puppet3)

My guess is that this would also be the case for RedHat and other distros too.
