Thanks for sharing!

I see, so the major point is that PuppetLabs are offering 3.x already,
which to me looks like quite a big leap. Personally, I'd like to stick
to 2.7.x on my infrastructure for awhile, now that I have extremely
limited time for maintenance available...

Having that said, I think it makes sense for us to provide 2.7.x for
quite some time. Steve has just merged Tom's pull request in, so now
it's up to Dag to build it and it will become available at some point.

The policy is that whatever gets into extended life cycle is supported
on the best effort basis, i.e. we don't willfully break things, but
support for those platforms is not a priority.
