Could you point us to the packages that you are using? At least the
releases for glusterfs-3.4 and the nightly builds for EPEL-7 have a
requirement on python-2.7. This dependency should be generated while the
RPMs get build for the specific distribution. 

You can get the packages here:
- http://download.gluster.org/pub/gluster/glusterfs/3.4/LATEST/CentOS/epel-7/x86_64/

Or, use this .repo file for YUM:
- http://download.gluster.org/pub/gluster/glusterfs/3.4/LATEST/CentOS/glusterfs-epel.repo
