Correct, that is the preferred URL on master with 


being the form on stable branches.

This is on stable/stein where we need it to match the form above to
enable os-vif to out live openstack-requirements

Thanks, the requirements team has committed to making this change, so
you can expect a conflicting change in the near future ;P

The bottom line is these patches were generated by a well meaning but
slightly out of touch member of the community.  They're not wrong,
they're just not the preferred direction for the requirements team.

on *master* you can use the git URLs and ignore/abandon the changes the
requirements team generate.  I'll be a little sad if you do as then
master is more different to a stable branch but nothing will break if
you point directly at opedev.org/.../master/.../upper-constraints.txt.

The same isn't true for stable/$series.  Using git will break just not for
somewhere between 1-4 years from now.
Yours Tony.
