Dmitry has raised a valid point: when the base distro already has a
package that satisfies both Fuel and OpenStack global requirements, we
should keep that package even if a more recent version is available
from PyPi.

I think this rule fits fine within the general frame of Roman's proposal:

- if the base distro already has a package that satisfies OpenStack
global requirements (or Fuel requirements), the distro package is
- else, OSCI mirror should contain the maximum version of a
requirement that matches its version specification.
