I think what happened is:
1) oslo.log indirectly requires Babel
2) requirements blacklists Babel 2.3.x
3) keystone has new requirements included and thus fails

The problem here is that oslo.log requires olso.i18n which requires
Babel. And if oslo.i18n would have had a release with the blacklisting
of Babel 2.3.x, this wouldn't have happened. So, I propose to release

Babel 2.3.4 which fixes the known problems might be out soon as well -
and if that does not introduce regressions, this will self-heal,
