Hello, I notice llvm begin require python atleast 2.7,
Then I saw the commit log
Require python 2.7.
We were already requiring 2.5, which meant that people on old linux distros
had to upgrade anyway.
Requiring python 2.6 will make supporting 3.X easier as we can use the 3.X
According to the discussion on llvmdev, there is not much value is requiring
just 2.6, we may as well just require 2.7.
I’m using rhel 6 so the default python version is still 2.6,
down the requirement to 2.6 will help rhel 6 a little bit.
Here is python 2.7 features
Is these fetures must be use?
Ofcource I can build python 2.7 myself or use rhel software collections,
but it will make the software I built on llvm require python 2.7 too.
If python 2.6 is ok I hope llvm require this version for the years until switch to python 3.
