Added the specified versions and cleaned the old ones up.
Applied the fix to salt-2015.8.13 series as well (in 2015.8.13-r1), which I assume Patrick still wants to keep around.

These still need to be fixed:
> =app-admin/salt-2015.5.10
> =app-admin/salt-2017.7.0
These need to be cleaned up:
> =salt-2015.8.13

@maintainer, upstream only patched 2016.11. Are previous versions needed?
