My understanding is that 2.10 sill move some supported modules also to
collections and they have defined the way to deliver it using both galaxy
for upstream and automation hub for downstream [1][2]. We could confirm
with Ansible team if they plan to deliver it *only* via automation-hub or
also using packages, but I guess we will rely on what they provide for all
supported content. I think it'd be good to have a clear picture of what
they will support and how they will deliver it.

For the collections maintained in OPenStack, it may make sense to build
RPMs for it to keep our rpm-based workflow.
