By the time I was around, a solution was found which involved merely
adjusting the release project requirements list, so no action was
needed outside normal code review workflow.

The "proper" way to do this is to declare openstack/governance in
the required-projects lists for the jobs which are using it, and
then the tox role from zuul-jobs will know to consume it from
locally supplied source instead of fetching it from PyPI. This also
allows Zuul to handle cross-repository dependencies properly, so a
requirements change would be able to successfully Depends-On some
proposed change in governance even before it's merged.
