    Description

      This is a follow on from PA-1139 to implement appropriate handling for the Hiera configuration files during an upgrade.

      This is the recommendation that emerged for Puppet 5.0.0:

      a. New installs: Lay down the appropriate v5 hiera.yaml in $confdir and $environment:
      b. On upgrade:

      • If we detect a hiera.yaml in either $confdir or $environment, don’t install a new file in either location.
      • Don’t remove $hieradata.
