Using one distribution which covers all images makes life simple in Kolla.

Alpine may not cover all our needs as some software still requires 
things present in glibc, missing in musl libc.

And while openstack-base image probably could be built using one of 
python lite containers there are images derived from it which install 
additional distro packages. So instead of taking packages from one 
distribution (Debian) we would take from Debian or Alpine. Which could 
get out of sync too easily.
