Thanks Clark and Jeremy! This is very helpful. 

Serg, now knowing that CI testing is not going to continue in few weeks 
and many other projects has dropped python 2.6 support or getting there, 
if Murano decides the same that would be great. If Murano team decide to 
continue the 2.6 support, we will need to enable support in tosca-parser 
as well. As you mentioned it may not be a lot of work for us and we are 
totally fine in making changes, but without automated tests it can be 
challenging in future.
