Official support for Python 2.6 ended 4+ years ago. Supporting it has a cost (see #1128). Consider deprecating it with v0.8, or dropping it altogether. I am in favor of dropping it.

Going to follow the directives for dropping support for older python versions

  • v0.8 adds the python_requires metadata
  • it is the last Eve version to offer support for Python 2.6
  • changelog states that Python 2.6 is now deprecated
  • a subsequent release (ideally, 0.9) will drop Python 2.6

This way, when/if someone with Python 2.6 tries to install eve, he/she gets v0.8, even when 0.9+ is available.
