Correction: GlusterFS-5 is mostly or completely python3 ready.  FWIW,
python33 is available on both RHEL7 and CentOS7 from the Software
Collection Library (SCL), and python34 and now python36 are available from

But packages built for the CentOS Storage SIG have never used the SCL or
EPEL (EPEL not allowed) and the shebangs in the .py files are converted
from /usr/bin/python3 to /usr/bin/python2 during the rpmbuild %prep stage.
All the python dependencies for the packages remain the python2 flavors.
AFAIK the centos-regression machines ought to be building the same way.
