Projects should also make sure their requirements files are up to date
as OpenStack now uses per-project requirements.  Further projects should
make sure they have a release containing the update.  This means that
updates to the requirements files falls to the individual projects and
not the requirements bot.  It is recommended that you have a
lower-constraints.txt file and test with it to know when you need to
update.  See the following example for how to run a basic tox LC job.
