- tempest, nova failures due to fresh boto release.
To be fixed with: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/146049/ (needs 
backports to Juno and Icehouse, and merge of openstack bot patches to 
nova and tempest repos)

recently fixed:
- keystone failed before due to new pip, fixed with 
- nova failed before due to huge logs filled with DeprecationWarning 
warnings (fixed with latest stevedore release).

Other than that, there were some failures due to pypi mirror issues.

assigned to the projects?
