Why openstack packstack is not using ansible?

Hello dear members,

Considering the simplicity and power of ansible, I was wondering why openstack packstack is still clinging onto puppet? Ansible is simple and works like a charm just like, executing a shell script to or from remote machine(s). Always used to feel like SCM tools should follow the simple shell script way of executing things rather than asking to learn their own language. So would packstack be rolling an ansible deployment anytime sooner?

I am aware of openstack Ansible but just want to check about the future of openstack packstack as the RDO is quite often tried by the beginners as well.
