[openstack-dev] [packaging] liberty doesn't have caps on deps

So, this is my perspective in packing liberty for Gentoo.

We can have multiple versions of a package available to install, because
of this we generally directly translate the valid dependency versions
from requirements.

    oslo.concurrency>=2.3.0 # Apache-2.0
becomes this

Now what happens when I package something from mitaka (2.7.0 in this
case would be mitaka).  It's undefined behaviour as far as I know.

Basically, I can see no reason why the policy of caps changed from kilo
to liberty, it was actually nice to package for liberty, I can see this
going very bad very quick.

Where are my caps?
