At present we support Python back to about 2.3 (That I have tested). It
may work on 2.2 but I haven't tried. Pyhon2.2 is currently our minimum
version supported. My question is whether we wish to continue using 2.2
as the minimum going forward. I am wondering if we might consider
something like Python 2.7 and higher.
Python2.7 can be built on older platforms that may not come
pre-installed with it (much older versions of Centos and Fedora for
CentOS 6, that can hardly be called much older and will be supported for
quite a long time, is still at Python version 2.6. CentOS 5 uses it as
well. That would probably be a better minimum.
