I think Centos7 will install Swift 2.5 (i,e Liberty). Looking at a Swift 
2.5 setup I have here:

$ cd /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/swift-2.5.0.egg-info
$ grep copy entry_points.txt

So there is no explicit copy in there. Remove copy from the pipeline and 
filter specification and it should start (I'm guessing that copy is 
enabled by default in these later swift versions).

Probably better to use the install guide for your specific version:
