Sorry that I forgot to answer.

Just to confirm, Raphael is right with the above. Upstream doesn't
provide security patches after a year, and what's in Jessie lost support
from upstream just a few weeks after the release.

Even more: if we had PPAMAIN (or Bikesheds?), I'd stop uploading to Sid
and I would work there only, so that I wouldn't get the burden of
supporting Stable, plus Debian users would get the benefits of having
all the releases of OpenStack having a specific repository, making it
more easy to do upgrades (and security supports would match what
upstream provides).

To answer your question, all the packages for OpenStack are listed on
the team's QA page:
