I forgot to explain what's *not* working. The patch at #445813 is to fix
installation of Puppet in Stretch. Then later on, running puppet fails,
and then a chown -R jenkins:jenkins crashes, ending the image
preparation, probably because of the puppet run failure earlier.

Anyway, just try to run the script and see by yourself...
