This is exactly what you did, and what I like in your answer.
Everything you said, as wise as it is, isn't documented in the governance [1].
You have knowledge, and that knowledge on why certain things are done should be recorded for the future.
The more we share, the more people will be able to challenge it or understand it.

Totally agree. I have so many points I want to raise. I realise asking what I have in mind will cause more trouble on this mailing list than the value it will bring. I just want the TC to think broader than the "we used to do it this way, and this is the only way". I am sure the topic raised some questions, and will give enough food for thoughts. Hence, I hope it will result in the improvement of OpenStack :)

I didn't say it was a goal or if I consider this important.
I just wanted to mention that they are other ways to consume software than distribution packages.

Side note: I have spent to much time on this, so I will just step out now.
I hope the TC got enough details about what to make out of this in the future.
If you need an extra $0.02, you know where to find me :)
