strfmt-errors checks that snprintf format stings are correct on both 32-
and 64-bit platforms.

Are you ready to drop support on 32-bit platforms? Some distributions are
dropping 32-bit, but Fedora still supports i686 and armv7hl by default; it
is possible to drop 32-bit on Fedora but there would be strong resistance
to doing it I suspect.  I also think it would be strange to drop it in the
middle of a release stream. If you want to drop it for, say, release-7
that'd be a good time to do it.

strfmt-errors isn't failing generally, AFAICT. The last failure is on a
release-5 branch build. Since the strfmt-errors runs on a CentOS machine I
suspect that it's the same issue we have with centos-regression, which
really goes back to the (misguided IMO) decision to put EPEL and python3 on
the centos builders.

misc sent me a list of all the things that "need" python3. Some/Many/All of
them are for things that run on fedora, e.g. clang-format.  Everything was,
AFAICT, working fine right up to when EPEL and python3 were installed on
the centos builders.  If it was my decision, I'd undo that change.
