[openstack-dev] Icehouse dependency freeze

We're now 1 month away from the scheduled release date. It is my strong
opinion (as the main Debian OpenStack package maintainer) that for the
last Havana release, the freeze of dependency happened really too late,
creating issues hard to deal with on the packaging side. I believe it
would be also hard to deal with for Ubuntu people (with the next LTS
releasing soon).

I'd be in the favor to freeze the dependencies for Icehouse *right now*
(including version updates which aren't packaged yet in Debian).
Otherwise, it may be very hard for me to get things pass the FTP masters
NEW queue in time for new packages.
