Hello Fellow OpenStackers,

Please notice pip 21 was released just yesterday.
It means Python 2 is no longer supported.
Upgrading pip to latest on Python 2 may render pip unusable (as
ancient pip may not consider 21 an unsupported version and install it
Similarly, using default get-pip.py on Python 2 no longer works.
There is, however, https://bootstrap.pypa.io/2.7/get-pip.py
for those that want to use get-pip.py on Python 2.

Kind regards,
