Hey folks,

I have received significant feedback that the lack of Ubuntu binary support is a problem for Kolla adoption.  Still, we had nobody to do the work, so we held off approving the blueprint.  There were other reasons such as:

  *   There is no delorean style repository for debian meaning we would always be installing Liberty with our Mitaka tree
  *   Given the first problem, a gate may not be feasible - a voting gate would never be feasible

Still, I think on balance, the pain here is worth the gain.  We could just state we wont block any activity on the Debian binary release (this includes tagging, releasing, etc) and mark it as "technical preview" until we sort out the Liberty->Mitaka port in the stable branch.  I'd like other core reviewers thoughts?  I really really want this feature, even if tis tech preview and marked with all kinds of warnings.  Without it Kolla is incomplete.

This review is terrible (it needs to be broken up into separate patches) but its a huge step in the right direction IMO :)


Comments and thoughts welcome.
