Hi Tony,

Thanks for the write-up.

At the last Denver PTG we also discussed the switch from
UPPER_CONSTRAINTS_FILE environment variable
to TOX_CONSTRAINTS_FILE. As this change and the switch from
would touch the very same line of text in the tox.ini, I would suggest
that we combine that into one review as that is ~ 300 reviews
less to conflict-merge and resolve when both would happen
independently at the same time.

I started the patch series to add TOX_CONSTRAINTS_FILE in addition to
UPPER_CONSTRAINTS_FILE so that lower-constraints
setting looks less odd here:


Would be good to get this in in-time so that requirements team can do
both changes in one review set.
