The one thing that builds an overcloud in a prescriptive manner is called
'tripleo-incubator' precisely because we don't believe it is ready to be
called a release. It does focus on testing the integrated release only
though, and so is closer to your original #2. It's just important to
note that this is just our own distribution, and does not fully represent
the whole output of the program.
