What do you mean in (b) about upstream python not supporting python 2.6? 
>From what I understand here, it's the version of testrepository being used 
that doesn't support py26, not python itself or openstack.

Anyone doing development or test on RHEL 6 (which doesn't have python 2.7) 
is going to have an issue with this.

' cannot        import name OrderedDict'

Python 2.6 isn't one of the official supported Pythons for
testrepository, and I managed to break that when I fixed tests on
Python3.3 (which has more random dicts). So Testrepository 0.0.16
breaks on 2.6, 0.0.17 is fixed.

However until the fixed version propogates into the OpenStack-infra
PyPI mirror, I think every Python2.6 run will fail in this way.

a) sorry.
b) Can we not say 'if you want to run OpenStack on a Python version
upstream python don't support, it's your problem, not ours' ?
