[OpenStack-Infra] puppet-openstackci git history

How did we get here?

For a long time there were two place to put configuration: the <thing>
module, or the openstack_project::<thing> class. Both of these were in the
same repository and it didn't much matter to anyone where configuration

In my mind we should move everything we responsibly can into the modules
themselves. That greatly reduces the volume of code in openstackci and
openstack_project. Such refactors across repos does break the utility of
tools like git-bisect, but the history is still preserved in system-config
and someone who knows our history can find that easily.
