There have been many patches submitted to drop the Python 3.7
classifier from setup.cfg:
The justification is that Wallaby tested runtimes only include 3.6 and 3.8.

Most projects are merging these patches, but I've seen a couple of
objections from ironic and horizon:

- https://review.opendev.org/c/openstack/python-ironicclient/+/769044
- https://review.opendev.org/c/openstack/horizon/+/769237

What are the thoughts of the TC and of the overall community on this?
Should we really drop these classifiers when there are no
corresponding CI jobs, even though more Python versions may well be

Best wishes,
