Are Python versions quite as old as 2.3 still needed? I'd have thought rather a lot of interesting modules didn't support that any more ...

Anyway, I've given it a quota bump.

Thanks for the generous bump!

As for your question: the last time I tried to remove the really old ones, someone reported that they still use it for some hellishly outdated system or device that used Python 2.3. That was as recent as a few years ago. I don't think we can get any stats on how many people actually still use the old versions, either. It's mostly a case of "we have them, we might as well upload them", but I wouldn't rule out that someone uses the 2.x packages as a somewhat modern development environment for some equipment that shall never be upgraded.
