I wonder if we should look at publishing the upper-constraints.txt file
somewhere (other than cgit).  If we did something like:


We wouldn't have an issue when we EOL a branch and the url's hard-coded
in tox.ini breaking.  queens.txt wouldn't exist until we branch
requirements but we could work around that with a redirect if needed.

Later we could get really crazy and make a version that took a package
name and version perhaps like:

tarballs.o.o/constraints/$(python setup.py --name)/$(python setup.py --version)

Which would redirect to the appropriate series file.  I think we have
enough data in openstack/releases to generate those redirects.  We'd
need to think about projects / repos that don't use the release

That'd mean we could get way from hard-coding the URLs in tox.ini and
therefore not need to update them at branch time.

I've either had too much coffee or not enough.  y'all decide.

Yours Tony.
