Ansible galaxy roles only support three-year-old Ubuntu 12.04

Hi guys,
I've sent three small pull requests through, addressing different issues.
I've only been testing my changes on Ubuntu 12.04 and 14.04 (the two most
recent LTS versions) but have left some notes referring to points that are
worth you checking on Red Hat.

There's still some big issues with the role failing if certain variables
haven't been defined -- but I'm not sure if that's because you're in the
middle of refactoring the way that stuff works, or some other
in-development plan you haven't finished yet.

There are also issues where buckets and security settings will fail on
everything after the first run, because they already exist. ie. The
commands aren't idempotent.

Cheers
Toby
