All I wanted to do is change the release model of the *-aas projects,
without side effects. I appreciate that the governance structure doesn't
seem to allow this easily, and I am looking for guidance.

To the best of my knowledge none of the *-aas projects are part of defcore,
and since [1] has no presence of vpn, fw, lb, nor planned, I thought I was
on the safe side.

I could not see one in [1]
