I think these messages have gone un-noticed by the openstack-ansible 
team due to the missing tags in the topic line of these messages, see 

In general stable branches only have bugfixes backported, not new 
features. The openstack stable branches are described here 

Regarding the patch sets you have created, review of those should happen 
in the gerrit comments, as Dimitry has already started. The changes 
would need to be appropriate in the wider context of openstack-ansible. 
Please join the IRC channel #openstack-ansible if you'd like to discuss 
more in real-time.
