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

The only puppet apply is for the pulp-unittest [1] puppet module. Looking
on its source code it seems to be just setting up some packages depending
on the slave OS.

We can either install them on the prepare_node.sh or create an ansible
playbook for it. Or even have both, for example I think it is valuable to
have on the base nodes the following packages:

* git
* gcc
* python-devel
* python-pip
* redhat-lsb
* wget
* ruby-devel (not sure about this one, but can be needed)

Other packages like:

* tito
* rpm-build
* python-{paste,lxml,argparse,..}
* mongodb
* qpid

Can be installed as needed by the jobs.

I will wait for opinions before I make a plan to get this done.
