Technically, we can decide to manage os installation and provisioning,
especially if we want to test and spin VMs, but this would requires
something like cobbler, etc and a more complex setup. I guess we can
safely push that to later :)

While i can see why you would put -1 to ruby, it has to do with
dependencies issues, or another problem ?

( cause from my own experience, puppet is in ruby, but thereisn't much
dependencies issue, except when they did changed from ruby 1.8 to ruby
2.0 and puppet 3 )

We only test on EL6 and EL7, that's it ? No Fedora jenkins, or
anything ?
