> We're going to have potential breakage (gate breakage, in the integrated tests) any time we release a package (regardless of release mechanism) and have to update two separate repositories resulting in out-of-sync version specification and expectation (ie. upper-constraints specification and Horizon's code expectation) as described in my OP. The only solution that we're aware of is to synchronise updating those two things, through one of the mechanisms proposed so far (or possibly through a mechanism not yet proposed.)

If we will anyway have potential breakage I don’t understand why the better solution here would not be to just use the bower and npm tools which are standardised for JavaScript and would move Horizon more towards using widely recognised tooling from within not just Openstack but the wider development community. Back versions always need to be supported for a time, however I would add that long term this could end up saving time and create a stable longer term solution.
