Release Notes Summary: According to an updated convention `site-modules` is now recommended to be used instead of `site` for any modules not intended to be managed with a Puppetfile. Both `site` and `site-modules` are now included on the default modulepath to maintain backward compatibility and support the new convention.
QA Risk Assessment: Needs Assessment


site as a directory on the module path is confusing to new users. We should add a new directory called site-modules to the module path before site and document that it is the preferred directory for local modules. We can make a decisions about deprecating site for the 2.0 release later.
