We do already have a bunch of elements in
openstack-infra/project-config, so most of the velocity concerns
have been around "upstream" elements (lately a number of the
-minimal distro variants as we've been migrating our nodepool
deployment to rely heavily on dib). Decoupling the elements in
diskimage-builder from the framework and maintaining them in
separately-versioned repositories might help, but regardless Infra
team consensus has been primarily to just keep collaborating on
those common elements and find downstream workarounds while we wait
for bug fixing iteration to take place and releases to be tagged.

Makes sense! It's also possible some of the elements bundled in
diskimage-builder aren't actually used in "OpenStack the Product"
and are just along for the ride, but I don't really know enough
about the other consuming projects to be able to say either way.
