That sounds like a good solution to that specific issue. It may also require 
changes in the application test suites, but those changes can be made as we 
move them to use oslotest.

How do you see that working? We want all of the Oslo libraries to, eventually, 
support both python 2 and 3. How would we use the classifiers to tell when to 
build a universal wheel and when to build separate wheels?

We only know the wheels can be installed. We don’t actually have a test that 
installs our code and runs it any more (devstack uses “develop” mode which 
bypasses some of the installation steps, as we found while fixing the recent 
neutron/pbr issue with a missing config file in their packaging instructions).

To fix the asymmetric gating we have between pbr and everything else, Robert 
suggested setting up some sort of job to install pbr and then build and install 
a package for the project being tested. We already, as you point out, have a 
job that does this for all of the projects to test changes to pbr itself. Maybe 
we can run the same test under python 2 and 3 as part of the same job?
