Hi JP,

Firstly thank you for your response.

Over the weekend, I did something kind of similar to what you describe.

1. Built a AIO (inside main OSA) @ 16.04/Newton
2. took it's venv files and placed them in the higher level OSAs repo
but as - Example: glance....-xenial.tgz
3. copied the existing (14.04 based) venv files to glance.....-trusty.tgz
4. Updated the os-{component}-install.yml playbooks to have '-{{
ansible_distribution_release | lower }}' in their respective
_venv_download_url: variable.
5. cleared facts, destroyed containers (the new ones), ran
setup-hosts,setup-infra(without repo-install), setup-openstack.
6.  All good.

Today I am proceeding with my other infrastructure nodes.  When I make
it through all 16.04 upgrades I plan on rebuilding the repo_container
for all repo_hosts.

I didn't do something like shut off the other || old-14.04 containers
as you described above as I thought that it would deploy 16.04 based
venvs to my existing 14.04 servers as I roll through them one at a
time.  Is that correct ?

again thank you very much for your time.

Best Regards,
