Joseph, 2.5 or higher, but 2.7 - the highest available version is best because it is the fastest of all Python 2.x.

On my development box I have 2.6, ve have not run tests on different versions recently, but if something breaks we will fix instantly.

On github/askbot I saw tox.ini, with py2.5, 2.6 and 2.7 in it. I assumed you were running tox automatically :)

not recently, but we will return to doing that regularly.

So 2.4 is not supported? Or you haven't tested it?

Python 2.4 will not work, tested that. We are unlikely to try fixing this.
