ok so we should we update teh setup cfg markers to reflect that?
we still state 3.5 on nova master

yes i know what i was getting at is becauese we still have to support pyton 2.7 in train
the subset of lanague feautres we can currently use is what is support on python 2.7 and
also work son python 3.6

meaning we cannot use any python3 only feature until U.

i have not dug into the failure other than to know that the agent hangs or crashes when you boot a vm with
no error messages of any kind in journalctl.
so we will need to fix it but at this point it could be anything form eventlet not working properly to we have some
python27/36 only code on the spawn codepath.

the fact that even with devstack and debug loggin enabeld the output just stops makes i hard figure out whats actully
going on but i also have not dug into it much yet.
