I wish I could help you,  but I have no idea how to add a new base image
to the infrastructure system.  I know when I worked at Red Hat, we had
have a full time engineer work on it for 9 months before Fedora was added.
 The best folks to reach out to are the infra team on #openstack-infra on
irc.  The Kolla developers aren't in any position to solve the problem,
although we would definitely benefit from your work.

Best wishes
