Note that RedHat has packages for Fedora up through Puppet 4.10, so it's not so far behind there. Very likely one of the reasons these are not making it into EPEL is indeed the dependencies. In particular, the EL6 Ruby version is pinned at 1.8.7, which Puppet has not supported for a long time, and the EL7 Ruby version is pinned at 2.0.0, which is behind what Puppet recommends even for Puppet 4. Since you want a more recent Ruby to run the latest Puppet, I'm inclined to agree that the packages from Puppet, Inc. are your best alternative at this point.
