rhel 9 wont be around for quite a while yet but i think its also going
to be based on 3.9 so having early gating on 20.04 would be quite
useful as i think we should be trying to make 3.9 supported in wallaby
the next majory redhat openstack release will be based on wallaby and
that is likely to be rhel9 based so having rhel 9 compatiablw will help
all the major distos be able to ship wallaby when it is released
