I'm not sure I find this decision as fine as you do.

Any example?

Of course, this is only the voice of an outsider, "only" doing the
packaging of the finalized code, so excuse me if it sounds like I don't
understand anything (probably it's the case). But...

I really don't understand why the Telemetry team insists in being
release-independent, out of big tent and such, when the reality is that
all of released Telemetry components are *very tightly* bound to a
specific versions of OpenStack. IMO, it doesn't make sense upstream, or
downstream of Telemetry.

Now, having Gnocchi out of the OpenStack infra is to me a step in the
wrong direction. We should aim at full integration with the rest of
OpenStack, not getting out.
