python 2.4 migration status


piman asked 2 weeks ago, what's the status of python2.4 migration :

In september i asked a similar question and the reply :

> maybe others are done. It's ok to drop python2.1 and python2.2 support
> at this time, if you do an upload anyway.

Is it possible to have a reply on this subject ? or a planning ?
