dib is part of a TripleO "release" given it's used by users to both
install the Undercloud and build Overcloud images. IMO, I think it
makes sense to move it from release:independent to

Just fyi, the topic of choosing the right release tags for all the
TripleO projects just came up in the TripleO meeting today in light of
moving to the centralized release tagging. I would think all the
projects would be moving from release:independent to the proposed
release:cycle-trailing or release:cycle-with-intermediary.
