Is there any data about how operators approach this currently? Nectar
(and I presume other large and/or loosely coordinated OpenStack
clouds) has been running different projects across multiple versions
for quite a while, sometimes 3 or 4 different versions. Coordinating
upgrades in a federated cloud with distributed operations requires
that we do this, e.g., our current Nova Newton upgrade has probably
been in-train for a couple of months now.
