It was announced to the mailing list by @amercader in January that support for python 2.6 was going to be dropped with ckan 2.6 (what a wonderful coincidence).

https://lists.okfn.org/pipermail/ckan-dev/2016-January/009608.html

Starting from the next CKAN 2.6 version, the minimum Python version
required for CKAN will be Python 2.7 (we recommend using the latest
Python patch release).

There still are some backports and workaraounds for 2.6 in the code and the documentation needs upgrading.

Grep for 2.6

Python files

ckan/lib/util.py
13:# subprocess.check_output() isn't in Python 2.6.
15:# Python 2.6.

ckan/model/extension.py
17:        "Replaces stdlib operator.methodcaller in python <2.6"

ckan/tests/helpers.py
36:    # Python 2.6 doesn't have these, so define them here

ckanext/datapusher/tests/test.py
87:        # Httpretty crashes with Solr on Python 2.6,

ckanext/resourceproxy/tests/test_proxy.py
63:        # Httpretty crashes with Solr on Python 2.6,

Documentation:

doc/contributing/python.rst
77:We use `the Python standard library's logging module <http://docs.python.org/2.6/library/logging.html>`_

doc/contributing/string-i18n.rst
339:  Worse (doesn't work in Python 2.6):

36:Python                 `The Python programming language, v2.6 or 2.7 <http://www.python.org/getit/>`_

I'll prepare a PR to remove all of those things.

- `operator.methodcaller` was implemented in python2.7. Now that ckan
  only supports 2.7 it is no longer required to check if the import is
  possible or not. We can besure that it is there.

- `assert_in` and `assert_not_in` were duplicated
  in `ckan/tests/legacy/__init__.py` and
  `ckan.tests.helpers` because they were not
  available in python2.6
- This commit removes the back porting from those
  files and just imports from nose.tools directly
  everywhere

- This was used to skip this test under python2.6 which will not be
  tested anymore in the future
