Update to version 2.8.0

Major changes:

* Experimental support for Ansible Collections and content namespacing -
Ansible content can now be packaged in a collection and addressed via
namespaces. This allows for easier sharing, distribution, and
of bundled modules/roles/plugins, and consistent rules for accessing
specific content via namespaces.
* Python interpreter discovery - The first time a Python module runs on
a target, Ansible will attempt to discover the proper default Python
interpreter to use for the target platform/version (instead of
immediately defaulting to /usr/bin/python). You can override this
behavior by setting ansible_python_interpreter or via config. (see
* become - The deprecated CLI arguments for --sudo, --sudo-user,
--ask-sudo-pass, -su, --su-user, and --ask-su-pass have been removed,
in favor of the more generic --become, --become-user,
--become-method, and
* become - become functionality has been migrated to a plugin
architecture, to allow customization of become functionality and 3rd
party become methods (

- addresses CVE-2018-16859, CVE-2018-16876, CVE-2019-3828, CVE-2018-16837
