Installing an old OpenStack version

Hey guys!

I need to install an old (vulnerable) Openstack version for a security demo. I tried cloning the old EOL branches from git, but when ever I run the it would update the installation to the newest version - I don't want that. Is there any way to stop devstack from updating before starting? Or install a vulnerable branch from outside of github? Because I'm not sure if the tags that are given to the EOL versions actually work...

Thanks a lot!

I am sure you can hack the script to not update, I don't know of an option to do it.

That may not be your biggest issue though. You may not be able to met the pip requirements of older versions of openstack due to update backages. The older packages may not even exist anymore. Your best bet would be to find a distro with this version of openstack packaged as all the dependacies should resolve correctly.

Are there any free ones out there? As far as I understood those distros cost money...?

I am aware of no distro that requires money. I doubt that is even possible legally. This is all opensource software after all. Ubuntu and cloud-archive have a few versions back, I would start there.
