[Pulp-dev] Puppet setup on prepare_node script (pulp_packaging)

+1 to pulling out puppet to unblock the builds.
+1 to replacing any puppet usage with Ansible, which is consistent with the
current direction[0].

After digging around in git some, it looks like those puppet lines were
originally added in 2015 with this commit[1]. That commit both installs
puppet and runs some `puppet apply ...` statements, so pulling puppet out
should be fine as long as those `puppet apply` statements get replaced with
something else (either Ansible, or $ANOTHER_IDEA).

Thank you for raising this and whatever you can do on it.
