[QA] FYI: CI npm version upgraded from 2.x to 3.x

Please note that we've upgraded the version of npm used in the Wikimedia
continuous integration infrastructure. This means that CI should be more
consistent with developers' local set-ups, and lets us test in a more
normal environment. This change will only affect node-based CI tasks, like
the standard eslint/stylelint/jsonlint/banana tasks.

This is a breaking change for npm, as it will no longer silently install
peer dependencies – you need to specify them manually. If your repo was
previously warning about peer dependencies, it may now no longer work,
though we think we've fixed these. If you have this situation, you can fix
it by adding the appropriate peer dependencies to your repo's package.json
file, and if you can't work out how to fix it feel free to ask me or others
in IRC; #wikimedia-releng is normally best.

Thanks all!
