I think we should do: 

- If the package is in rhel already as a python2 only package: 
new review for python3-whatever in epel. This way we don't have to be
carefull to sync versions to the rhel version and wont interfere with
it. The package in epel should only build the python3 version of

- If the package is not in rhel, just python-foo branched from fedora
  and we can try and share specs to build things.
