The stable repositories are stable in the sense that they do not move
much and this is typically what you would expect in a production
This is the repository we provide through a RPM.
As far as stability goes, the flow can be summarized like this:
Delorean (current ) -> Delorean (current-passed-ci ) -> Stable
(rpm repository )
The delorean repositories (both current and current-passed-ci) share
the same repository  for dependencies.
Delorean picks up the source of upstream repositories each time there
is a commit and builds a package from it.
These packages are untested for the most part other than the very basics.
We then periodically pick up the latest delorean repository and make
it go through a series of integration tests (CI) where we install and
configure OpenStack deployments in a series of ways to try and make
sure that all the pieces of the puzzle work fine. If the set of
packages passes these tests, they are then promoted to
As deemed necessary (important bugs or security patches) or when there
is a dot release upstream, we will update the stable repositories -
the set of packages that will make it there will be picked up from a
hand-picked repository that has gone through CI to be promoted to
