Are you saying that the sync' isn't a policy knob, or
upper-constraints in openstack/requirements isn't a policy knob?  If
the later, then I suggest it very much is a policy knob.

The problem is, those that are reviewing it for the separate projects
are not engaged in the policy definition until it gets merged - then
question it at sync' time.  I think it is reasonable not to expect
cores of other projects to be terribly engaged with
openstack/requirements, but I suppose they need to learn to trust it.

As you said later, if it is green - then the code base has presumably
proved it can work with that version, so sync' it across.

Kind Regards,
Dave Walker
