Current FAQ indicates that Django supports 2.3-2.6. With Django 1.2, we will be dropping support for 2.3, and it's possible that 2.7 might be out.

Just making a ticket so that we don't forget to update this bit of documentation.

The FAQ is correctly showing what versions of Python are supported. See file install.txt in trunk.

Note djansoft is right: the dos have already been updated to remove any claim of supporting Python 2.3 (see r11640). The question of what, if anything, to say about Python 2.7 is still up in the air since 2.7 is not yet out. I did run the test suite with the 2.7 beta and it ran fine (excepting a few minor test problems which have been fixed). We could probably update the docs now and claim 2.7 support, even though it is a bit early. There don't appear to be any major issues with running under 2.7.

Note I intentionally left it open as a to-do for the 2.7 question. Not as critical as the removing the claim to supporting 2.3, but we should probably do something to mention 2.7 before 1.2 goes out.

Python 2.7 is targeted for June, so it's unlikely (I hope) we need to say anything in the FAQ before 1.2 goes out. We can update the FAQ when Python 2.7 is released.

Looks like we're going to release before Python 2.7, so we can close this.
