Description

We're dropping python2.6 support in django1.7.
https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/releases/1.7/#python-compatibility
https://groups.google.com/d/msg/django-developers/V-rsISVFwSo/dPIre-kg0PoJ

It could be helpful to give a heads up that this will be the last version to support python2.6. We didn't warn before dropping 2.3 and 2.5, but we did warn before dropping 2.4:
https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/releases/1.3/#python-compatibility
"Django 1.3 continues to support Python 2.4, but will be the final Django release series to do so; beginning with Django 1.4, the minimum supported Python version will be 2.5."

In django1.5, we did say we "highly recommend" 2.7+. We could repeat that.
