Description (last modified by thijs)

[source:trunk/twisted/topfiles/] forces Python 2.3 to be the minimum but this should be 2.4 like the check in [source:trunk/twisted/]. Perhaps it should be centralized somewhere, available to other packages as well, like the copyright/version string?

Made some changes in the branch. Didn't try to refactor the duplication. That'd be nice, but changing this is a very infrequent event so I don't quite feel motivated enough to figure out how to do that.

Tentatively added a .removal news fragment; maybe that's how we want to express this change to users, maybe not.

Ticket 4962 describes when to drop support for Python 2.4, which currently says announcing it in 11.1 and dropping in the subsequent release. Reviewing in anticipation of that:

  • Your changes look good.
  • There are a lot of old references to Python 2.2., 2.3, and 2.4 that should get looked at in a couple of new tickets. I opened 5385, 5386, and 5387 to track these. There are also some comments about Linux 2.2 that could probably also go away.

Author: exarkun Reviewer: jesstess Fixes: #5060

Change overall version checks and install documentation to require Python 2.5, reflecting the decision to make that the minimum required version of Python from the next release onward.
