bug that the managehome parameter on Windows doesn't work. According to
the documentation (since 2.7.6), the "manages_homedir [feature is defined
as] The provider can create and remove home directories."
As such, the fix for #15560 will create/delete the home directory when
ensure => present/absent, respectively, and managehome => true. Note,
managehome is false by default. This fix is targeted for 2.7.20 and is in
alignment with other *nix-y user providers that support the manages_homedir
feature, e.g. useradd.
However, there may be users out there that have set `managehome => true` in
their manifests, and are unaware of what that parameter means. Worse, they
may be surprised when upgrading to 2.7.20.
Clearly, we're fixing a bug, and matching the behavior as described in our
documentation, but we'd also like to keep 2.7.20 as stable as possible.
Also, Puppet 3.0 does create and delete the home directory, as expected.
