This is normal and what is expected.

Requirements are only updated for the branch in which those releases happen. So
if there is a release of oslo.messaging for stable/train, only the stable/train
upper constraints are updated for that new release. The stable/stein branch
will not be affected because that shows what the tested upper constraints were
for that branch.

The last stable/stein release for oslo.messaging was 9.5.0:


And 9.5.0 is what is set in the stable/stein upper-constraints:


To get that raised, whatever necessary bugfixes that are required in
oslo.messaging would need to be backported per-cycle until stable/stein (as in,
if it was in current master, it would need to be backported and merged to
stable/train first, then stable/stein), and once merged a stable release would
need to be proposed for that branch's version of the library.

Once that stable release is done, that will propose the update to the upper
constraint for the given branch.

Again, as expected. The last stable/stein release was 9.5.0, so that is correct
that the release notes for stein only show up to that point.
