if we won't pin pulpcore we'll keep receiving such reports as #4317.

> With more plugins going Beta and with frequent releases of pulpcore and
> pulpcore-plugin an issue with dependencies version showed up:
> - plugin requires pulpcore-plugin == 0.1.0bX
> - pulpcore-plugin 0.1.0bX requires pulpcore >= 3.0.0bY
> - at some point pulpcore introduces backward incompatible changes and the
> newest pulpcore is incompatible with the old pulpcore-plugin. E.g.
> It would be less of a problem when pulpcore goes GA but till then it is
> not nice user experience.
> Options to solve the issue:
> 1. Pin pulpcore with every pulpcore-plugin release
> 2. Pin pulpcore directly in a plugin
> 3. Don't do anything, we are in Beta, it will be fine when pulpcore is
> GA, semver will keep us from introducing backward incompatible changes in
> the Y or Z releases.
> 4. anything else?
> As a side note, we already have an issue with having multiple plugins
> installed if they require different pulpcore-plugin versions, so pinning
> pulpcore wouldn't introduce a new problem. Again this should be solved
> when we go GA, in my opinion.
> Any thoughts or concerns are welcome.
