[openstack-dev] [Fuel] Feature Freeze Exception Request - switching to CentOS-7.2

Postponing this till Fuel 10 means we have to elaborate a plan to do such
upgrade for Fuel 9 after the release - the underlying system will not get
updated on it's own, and the security issues will not close themselves. The
problem here is that such upgrade of deployed master node requires a lot of
QA work also.
Since we are not going to update package we build on our own (they still
targeted 7.1) switching master node base to CentOS-72 is not that dangerous
as it seems.
