 - Add measure_promise_time action body to lib (3.5, 3.6, 3.7, 3.8)
 - New negative class guard `cfengine_internal_disable_agent_email` so that
   agent email can be easily disabled by augmenting def.json
 - Relocate def.cf to controls/VER/
 - Relocate update_def to controls/VER
 - Relocate all controls to controls/VER
 - Only load cf_hub and reports.cf on CFEngine Enterprise installs
 - Relocate acls related to report collection from bundle server access_rules
   to controls/VER/reports.cf into bundle server report_access_rules

   and loading the appropriate inputs only when necessary

   be modified

   modified
 - To improve predictibility autorun bundles are activated in lexicographical
   order

   most useful for a good OOTB experience with CFEngine Enterprise Mission
   Portal.

   intended to be a user entry. This name change correlates with the main
   bundle being activated by default if there is no bundlesequence specified.

   processes after upgrade. (Redmine #7185)
 - Remove Diff reporting on /etc/shadow (Enterprise)
 - Update policy from promise.cf inputs. There is no reason to include the
   update policy into promsies.cf, update.cf is the entry for the update policy
 - _not_repaired outcome from classes_generic and scoped_classes generic (Redmine: # 7022)
 - standard_services now restarts the service if it was not already running
   when using service_policy => restart with chkconfig (Redmine #7258)

   days_older_than (Redmine #3009)
