[devstack][openstack-qa] DevStack upgrade betweem major releases

From the documentation:

It is used interactively as a development environment and as the basis for much of the OpenStack project’s functional testing.

"Development environment" means an environment for developing OpenStack software, not for running VMs that are used for generic development. It's purpose is to be set up quickly and destroyed after you are done with your development or test. Devstack can't even be rebooted out of the box; I can't imagine that there is a procedure to upgrade Devstack. 

Perhaps the documentation page should make it clear that it must not be used as a platform for business-critical tasks.
