Well, for the benefit of the "pure OpenStack CD" crowd, it would
continue to make sense to also test trunk of everything together. I
think what we had arrived at during the last summit was that we
wanted to make sure that server changes are being gated against
released libraries/clients *in addition to trunk* so that we ensure
features are released in those before we start relying on them. We
similarly probably need to test changes for a library/client against
released versions of any other libraries or clients on which they
depend as well, for those same reasons.
