I found 2 modules on

How to determine the lowest version of puppet master for these modules?

Raise an issue at their projects, asking the authors to update the documentation to be clear about which versions of Puppet are supported. Failing that, you just have to try it. It's likely to be as simple as finding out: is Puppet 4 supported or not? If not, probably use Puppet 3.8.5. If it is, probably use latest Puppet 4.

To this I only want to add that as Sys Admin I am responsible for keeping almost all software up to date, because old software become security vulnerable. Because of this keeping puppet muster not updated is not recommended.
