[openstack-dev] [tripleo] Rocky Ceph update/upgrade regression risk (semi-FFE)

i want to raise attention on remaining patches that are needed to
prevent losing Ceph updates/upgrades in Rocky , basically making the
Ceph upgrade mechanism compatible with config-download. I'd call this a
semi-FFE, as a few of the patches have characteristics of feature work,
but at the same time i don't believe we can afford having Ceph
unupgradable in Rocky, so it has characteristics of a regression bug
too. I reported a bug  and tagged the patches in case we end up
having to do backports.
Please help with reviews and landing the patches if possible.
It would have been better to focus on this earlier in the cycle, but
majority of Upgrades squad work is exactly this kind of semi-FFE --
nontrivial in terms of effort required, but at the same time it's not
something we can realistically slip into the next release, because it
would be a regression. This sort of work tends to steal some of our
focus in N cycle and direct it towards N-1 release (or even older).
However, i think we've been gradually catching up with the release cycle
lately, and increased focus on keeping update/upgrade CI green helps us
catch breakages before they land and saves some person-hours, so i'm
hoping the future is bright(er) on this.
Thanks and have a good day,
