[openstack-dev] [Fuel] Dropping Python-2.6 support

as it was planned and then announced at the OpenStack summit OpenStack services deprecated Python-2.6 support. At the moment several services and libraries are already only compatible with Python>=2.7. And there is no common sense in trying to get back compatibility with Py2.6 because OpenStack infra does not run tests for that version of Python.

The point of this email is that some components of Fuel, say, Nailgun and Fuel Client are still only tested with Python-2.6. Fuel Client in it’s turn is about to use OpenStack CI’s python-jobs for running unit tests. That means that in order to make it compatible with Py2.6 there is a need to run a separate python job in FuelCI.

However, I believe that forcing the things being compatible with 2.6 when the rest of ecosystem decided not to go with it and when Py2.7 is already available in the main CentOS repo sounds like a battle with the common sense. So my proposal is to drop 2.6 support in Fuel-6.1.
