I suspect what I call "common release of OpenStack 'integrated' projects
every 6 months" is what you call "server projects" later in the thread.

We publish a number of things, and a subset of them (which I call "the
integrated release") are released together every 6 months. Oslo
libraries are also released, but on a different cadence. Docs are
released, usually with a slight delay. I call those "deliverables", to
avoid confusion with the first set...

I think we are on the same line, just not using the term "release" for
the same thing ?
