One question on this: the spec says that projects may publish to
docs.openstack.org/project-install-guide/RELEASE/SERVICE/ (yay!).

Some projects have intermediate releases during the cycle; for example
in Mitaka, ironic had 4.3.0, 5.0.0, and 5.1.0 releases, with 5.1.0 being
the base for stable/mitaka.

Is it okay/expected that projects with this model publish an install
guide for each intermediate release as well? Again, using mitaka, ironic
would publish:


Thanks for all the hard work on this! :)
