What if operating systems would be the same?
As a Debian package maintainer, I really prefer if the underlying images
can also be Debian (and preferably Debian stable everywhere).

The issue isn't co-instability, but the fact that downstream
distribution vendors will only package *ONE* version of a given python
module. If we have Octavia with version X, and another component of
OpenStack with version Y, then we're stuck with Octavia not being
packageable in downstream distros.

Do you understand now? :)
