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 intent was to keep 2.6 compatibility for client and Oslo libraries. Which libraries are you referring to that require at least 2.7?

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.
