In my most recent attempts to get as broad a base of testing as possible,
I ran the test suite on Lucid.
The fails are here:
Most of these are just simple 2.6 vs. 2.7 minor incompatibilities or a
few cases of updated API's being used.
Before I expend any energy on this, how interested are we in making
sure juju works on Python 2.6? I figure a jenkins slave running the test
suite on lucid will find most issues.
As a wrap up of other possible targets for juju clients:
Ubuntu Lucid: 2.6
Ubuntu Maverick: 2.6 default, 2.7 available
Ubuntu: Natty+: 2.7
Mac OS X Lion: 2.7
Fedora 15: 2.7
RHEL 6: 2.6
My personal feeling is that we should probably make sure the *client*
works on lucid, but not worry too much if the whole of the unit tests
If others agree, then I will modify the build scripts to not run the
unit tests on lucid and to require python 2.7 for maverick.
