Huh? I think you're working a different bug, no? The testtools thing
is what I thought this thread was about :) The
oslo.messaging/middleware thing is separate but both are happening at
the same time on juno/stable. I was only referring to backing out a
pin of testtools - which is needed because with single-version-tempest
we can't pin any of tempests dependencies in just stable, we have to
have the pins be consistent across all versions tested by tempest
(with the current install strategy).
