A bad part of this our fault. We need to send out FLAG days on certain
packages (puppet being one of them) when an update goes into testing
and when it goes into production.

A second bad part is we do not keep many old versions of our packages
around due to limits on resources on our part.

Part of this is due to how puppet upstream works. Puppet only gives a
partial guarantee for backwards compatibility between 'major' version
upgrades (and only on the server), and the puppet recommended way of
upgrades is always:

Upgrade the server first, Upgrade the clients next.
