I'm afraid we made a lot of communications around it but you might
have missed it, no problem.
I have 3 questions for you:
- for what reasons would you not upgrade puppet?
- would it be possible for you to use puppetlabs packaging if you need
puppet4 on Xenial? (that's what upstream CI is using, and it works
- what version of the modules do you deploy? (and therefore what
version of OpenStack)

Fedora is shipping Puppet 4 and we're going to do the same for Red Hat
