<p>Hi guys,</p>
<p>Im not confortable enough to remove 2.5 just yet. Python 2.4 was quite old and didn&#39;t support much of the &quot;modern&quot; features, but thats not the case with 2.5. </p>
<p>I think I know a lot of people still using 2.5 and just thinking about upgrading. </p>
<p>Lets give it some more time...</p>
<p>Best regards,</p>

&gt; It needs to stay at least until the baselayout 1 to 2 upgrade path is<br>
&gt; still supported. I think that ends in June. I kinda like 2.5, its mmap<br>
&gt; bits are better than newer versions, perhaps due to heavy patching.<br>
&gt; sles and rhel5 still support it, maybe there are nice patches in those<br>
&gt; repos.<br>
June-ish sounds about right to me.<br>
