Thanks Paul, good to hear that I'm not the only one asking this :-P

Can u describe more of the 'most part it works fine'?

Anything that you've hit that I don't have to would be nice to know ;)

Yes +1

A matrix of kolla release to what openstack release would be nice,

Especially taking into account the fact that the image building process 
will likely work across many releases but the deployment part may not 
(which is fine with me, all I want right now is the docker image 
building, the deployment we already have existing tooling that we are 
working through and adjusting anyway).

PS: this likely won't be a permanent question but is more situational as 
godaddy moves from liberty to a newer release (once we get our processes 
streamlined we shouldn't be so far behind...).
