As discussed some weeks ago, we are reorganizing data files in rdoinfo
repository. The goals of this reorganization is to improve the CI and
management in gerrit, as discussed in [1]. After this reorganization:

- rdo.yml and deps.yml contain all info but tags and buildsys.tags for
OpenStack packages and dependencies.
- tags (used by DLRN instances to identify what packages tu build in RDO
Trunk repos) information are stored in files under "tags" directory. There
is a file named <tag>.yml for eah tag.
- buildsys-tags (used to tag the backages in CBS and specify what builds go
to each CloudSIG repo) will be stored in a file named <buildsys-tag>.yml
under "buildsys-tags" directory.

Note that after merging this change [2], when you need to update tags or
buildsys-tags to add new packages, new deps or propose updates, you need to
use the corresponding tag files instead of rdo.yml or deps.yml.

Also note that, if you have some script or tool which parses rdo.yml or
deps.yml, you need to adapt it to this change. The recommended way to parse
rdoinfo is to use distroinfo [3], as it hides the actual distribution of
data in files. This change will not affect any tool using distroinfo.

In the next dates we will update the documentation in RDO to reflect this

Don't hesitate to contact me on #rdo or using this mail list if you have
further questions or doubts.
