Yes, that decision was made at a time when our server projects had
stable branches, but our clients and shared libraries did not. My
recollection is that "server projects only" was a proxy for "only
projects with stable branches." Now that we have stable branches of,
say, python-novaclient where we can backport juno-relevant security
fixes, people on 2.6-only platforms who want to install and run
python-novaclient from PyPI can use the stable/juno version (though
I'll admit that finding which version works with 2.6 may be a tricky
proposition for a consumer who is unaware of this situation).
