Version naming for OpenStack Charms releases has changed from being
time-based (YY.MM) to one that is based on the newly-supported OpenStack

Individual charms will also no longer be developed to work with every
OpenStack release. Instead, each charm will leverage Charmhub tracks, each
which will determine a supported scenario.

See the following resource for details:
