If you don't want to rely on pip, then you have to use RPM or some
other method of installing the requirements. It is on the to do list

build faster, though I'm not sure if it would fully cover no access to
the internet at all.

Kolla just consumes RPMs (and debs). Package availability would
obviously depend on what distribution you're using, but python-jinja2
seems to already be packaged for Fedora:
