So this has been done.  There were a number of client releases that were
granted exceptions as they were just constraints bumps and it made
sense to get them into pike :)

The items that currently have excpetions are trackable here:

As you can see they both glance related.  I *think* the failure in the
nova py27 unit tests is bogus but we'll see after the recheck.

If it turns out to be persistent I'll need some help from the glance
team debugging that so we can take the updates.

The requirements team will discuss the status of these changes at the
next meeting if they haven't merged.

Yours Tony.
