Epic Link: Add Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial (amd64, i386) as a supported server platform
Story Points: 3
Sprint: RE 2016-05-04, RE 2016-05-11


Currently adding a platform to the PDB test pipeline requires a formal release of puppetserver. If we could test against nightlies via some flag we could release in step with puppetserver and reduce the lag before we're able to pick up on failures related to the new platform.

Added this issue to the top of the PDB "Hopper" (their medium-term Kanban backlog). They have had input that RE would like to see et his done within the next 4 weeks. Note that PDB is shrinking as a team; at least short term, they will have 1.5 people for the next several weeks. The team will have to determine where this fits with other urgent priorities and has a wednesday priorities session set for this week to discuss in context.

Melissa Stone is this being done by your team? As PDB doesn't have QA at the moment I am unclear who will do the actual work.

Yes, I am doing this work, with guidance from Wyatt Alt

Tests are running against both nightly sources and public sources. Success! We probably want to limit the number of cells in the test matrix, but we can make that decision later.
