Sure, and by seeing the current py39 job it is mostly passing
- https://zuul.openstack.org/builds?job_name=openstack-tox-py39

Let's discuss it in PTG and hopefully by then we might see centos9
release or closure plan to release dates and as discussed during
defining the Yoga tetsing runtime, we can update it once if
centos9 is there then update centos versionb as well as the py version
otherwise we can disucss only making py39 jobs voting which are running
on ubuntu focal.
