Since I'm seeing the same errors intermittently, I tried to run the script. 
Recall that CentOS still ships with Python 2. First I had to install 
rh-python36 from SCL. Then I had to change the script's shebang to 
"#!/usr/bin/env python". Now it complains that there's no requests module. 
I don't know how to resolve Python3 dependencies for a python installed 
from SCL. How far down the rabbit hole will I need to go to get the script 
working? ;)
