release:independent projects are rendered on this website [1], and ttx's
review comment was more to put kolla in releases:independent of the
releases repo rather then the mitaka location [1].  I misunderstood ttx's
comments to mean we were completely excluded which is not the case.

That said, release:cycle-with-milestones is still what we want :)

I'd ask people cut me a little slack on this, I am new to the
openstack/releases repository ;)
