I agree with that plan for Wheezy, but it's irrelevant for what I was
asking for.

What I was asking for was to have Openstack (and in this case, Nova) be
usable *now*, so we would package only the stable version in SID. I
believe Essex is a good candidate for Experimental right now, but not
for SID.

Now, we're stuck with OpenStack unstable being packaged in Debian, with
no choice but to wait until next April to get something stable, and in
the mean time, we'll be continuously packaging Essex, which will be a
moving target with constantly new features. That's really not an idea
situation for anyone willing to implement Openstack using our Debian
packaging right now!
