Fixing Puppet in Fedora/EPEL

I am still not in favor of a puppet3 package. This is largely due to
overall compatibility.  Puppet is a distributed system.  Having the
package be called puppet in some repositories and puppet3 in others
(along with bin files/utils) will only the make the overall
user-experience of Puppet worse IMHO.

Also if the existing Puppet (2.6.x) stays out there, how would a user
know that 2.6 is no longer maintained?  Does having a second package
without an upgrade path leaves the end-user out-to-dry in the longrun?
