The thing is - no one asked for Debian/binary images so far so I did not 
bothered you.

Your team provides packages for already released OpenStack stuff. From 
Kolla point of view it means that at beginning of a new development 
cycle we would need to get images for previous release with Debian 
binary packages built, tested and backported.
