[openstack-dev] [Horizon][stable][requirements] Modifying global-requirements to cap xstatic package versions

Hi folks,

We've run into some issues with various folks installing Horizon and
its dependencies using just requirements.txt which doesn't limit the
versions of xstatic packages beyond some minimum version. This is a
particular problem for releases prior to Ocata since those are not
compatible with the latest versions of some of the xstatic packages.
So, we believe what's necessary is to:

1. Update current global-requirements.txt to pin the current released
version of each xstatic package. We don't update xstatic packages very
often, so keeping g-r in lock-step with upper-constraints.txt is
reasonable, I think.
2. Update stable versions of global-requirements.txt to restrict them
to the versions we know are compatible based on the versions in
upper-constraints for the particular stable release.
