The issue is that even with beta releases like we publish at
milestones, new versions of these projects won't be installed in
gate jobs because we have to give pip special instructions to allow
pre-releases and we, as a rule, do not give it those instructions.
The result is that we need anything that is going to be installed
as via pip to be releasable at any point in the cycle, to address
dependency issues like we're dealing with here, and that means
changing the model back to cycle-with-intermediary.
This isn't something I foresaw when we talked about making all of
the TripleO components use a consistent model in the past. I'm sorry
for the oversight.
