Also been thinking about this.  We do have a central manifest already
(runtime.json + ansible group_vars/all in the core project). The mistake we
made is that we left all these tags at "latest" in the 0.9.0 release
(arguably because there had not been a release of the sub-projects yet, so
there was nothing else to use as a tag value).

In future releases, we need to first officially release any of the "leaf"
projects that aren't current, then branch the core repo into a release
branch, then commit a version of runtime.json (and other ansible files) on
this branch that pulls from a fixed tag (not latest) for all the other
projects.   Same thing for the kube-deploy, docker-compose, etc. -- branch,
commit fixed tags for images, then release.

As it is, the 0.9.0 release is only useful for practice with the Apache
release process.  The various source artifacts tagged 0.9.0 are not
actually compatible with each other.
