we should not support anything that's EOL. As a module author we act as
a software "vendor" to or users, we're responsible for them. We should
not encourage them to run outdated software. We should also point out

that our Puppet 4.7.1 is now EOL as well and we should maybe bump the
puppet version in all modules to at least 4.10.X? No matter if they use
