1.17-RC2 delays

despite the efforts, RC2 was not released last week as planned. The systests were being modified and there are still some red builds this morning as a result of incorrect paths to puppet repos. Additional challenge present changes in our infrastructure that now use incorrect tags for PR builds.


This was my fault. Rewriting the systests job to use forklift took a lot more than I expected and I should have done more extensive testing before releasing.
