    I'm probably the one to blame for that. Kolla follows milestones but is
    trailing the release, which makes it a bit of a release snowflake. I
    wasn't sure we should cut the stable branch at RC1 for such a case
    (since you're still far away from final).
    
    We should discuss what to do here (branch ASAP, branch at RC2...) on
    Monday on the release channel when Doug is around.

    FWIW Doug has been working on a spec so that projects communicate more
    clearly when they want the release branch to be cut. For
    milestone-driven projects it's usually clear (we branch at RC1), but for
    other cases (intermediary-released, trailing) options are a bit more
    open so having a way (through the openstack/releases repo) to clearly
    communicate "when" will definitely help.
