*[DC]: Can you please be more specific around "merged to upstream kube" ?
Reason i'm asking is because K8 is always ahead by 1 cycle with Origin and
as such are you saying that upstream kube branch should match with what
origin master code base cycle is - i.e. say currently origin master is
being worked on 1.10 K8 code base and as such upstream kube to "watch" is
1.10 branch ? *
