[openstack-dev] [glance] py27 gate situation

I have tried to debug this in my environment but so far not able to find
the reason.
While starting the api service from functional tests it fails to load
middleware 'rootapp' from api-paste.ini

What I have done is added below lines in tox.ini to enable debugging of
functional tests

basepython = python2.7
setenv =
  TEST_PATH = ./glance/tests/functional
commands = oslo_debug_helper {posargs}

and added pdb at

While executing each functional test, it creates the temp directory at
location /tmp/tmp* where it stores config, paste.ini and other required

So far no luck to find the exact cause.

Thanks & Regards,
