We already have multiple pre-release stable repos, I don't see why
adding extras would create more confusion. Ideally, OpenStack upstream
would not need per-release repos but without backward compatibility
taken seriously in clients and libs that's not doable technically.

It's case-by-case and Rally is a bad example, it will need to move to
release independent repo, same as Tempest. There's a good counter
example of release:independent Gnocchi where they don't have
stable/OPENSTACK-RELEASE branches but they do maintain
stable/MAJOR.MINOR and ensure there's matching branch for OpenStack
release[1] It's up to both, upstream project and package maintainer to
ensure that, otherwise it won't work.

But that's exactly a thing: if such projects don't have stable
releases matching particular OpenStack release we'd ship their random
release from master, without guarantees it actually works. Also
upstream doesn't have a way to deliver security updates, so we'd be on
our own to backport patches.

Let's first make a PoC and make sure user experience is great, there
are new ideas coming from Fedora how to modularize a distribution.
