Hey Steve,

A while ago (last mid cycle IIRC) we decided that rather than maintain
stable branches we would ensure that we could deploy stable openstack
releases from trunk. I believe Heat falls under this umbrella, and we
need to make sure that we support deploying at least the latest stable
heat release.

That being said, were lacking in this plan ATM. We *really* should have
a stable release CI job. We do have a spec though[1].
