This should be fine from the releases perspective. The more interesting
aspect is requirements.

Here are the repos that have oslo.policy as a dependency:


So this impacts a lot more than nova.

That said, if the oslo team (I say with my shiny new oslo hat off) is OK
with the level of risk this introduces, then it should be fine to do
another release. We are two weeks past oslo lib freeze, and one week
past non-client lib freeze, so this is getting really late. But if we
are going to do it, it should be today so it doesn't end up any later
than it already is.
