Jason Tishler announced last month[1] that he intends to upgrade Python

In order to assure a prompt and smooth transition to Python 2.7, the
following packages will need a rebuild/update:

Jari Aalto: bzr, codeville, getmail, mercurial, offlineimap, planet,
pylint, python-crypto, python-feedparser, python-logilab-astng, 
python-logilab-common, python-paramiko, spambayes, stgit, tailor,
