Quick reminder/follow-up on this : next week, on Thursday December 2nd, 
we'll make this new image the default, so all your cico-workspace pods 
in ocp.ci will be running from these refreshed images.

If you ignored previous mail asking for feedback, and that you have 
issue[s] with your ci scripts that were targeting centos 7/python 2, 
you'll be able to just use the previous container :
Just follow the previous method but replace 
quay.io/centosci/cico-workspace:latest  with
