Drop Python 3.0/3.1/3.2/2.6? #1627
After talking to some people at the sprint I'd like to propose dropping older Python versions in pytest 3.0.
In other issues we commonly told people we'll drop things when pip does, so we could safely drop 3.0/3.1/3.2 with pytest 3.0.
Looking at pypa/pip#3796 3.2 usage on PyPI is 0.03% (pip8) or 0.08% (earlier pip versions), so I think we should drop <= 3.2. Other testing related tools like coverage.py and various pytest plugins did so as well already.
As for 2.6, it's more commonly used, and still what people on e.g. CentOS are stuck with, so I'd rather not drop it before pip does (also because that's kind of what we promised to various people).
