Bug Description

Currently CLI Companion works only with python 2.6 and above. This means it does not work with Debian Lenny. It looks like it would be not much work to make CLI Companion run on python 2.5.

05:59 #ubuntu-beginners-team: < geekosopher> duanedesign: clicompanion needs python-support > 0.90 ,lenny has 0.8.4
06:17 #ubuntu-beginners-team: < geekosopher> duanedesign: got python-support 1.0.3 from backports but getting this error http://paste.ubuntu.com/538271/ (see below)
06:18 #ubuntu-beginners-team: < geekosopher> duanedesign: so does that mean it won't work for lenny?

Most newer Ubuntu releases uses python 2.6
Regretabbly CLI Companion has been put on the back burner for release in Debian.
*****Unless some Debian developers want to help.

Notes from team?

Python 2.5 was released 10 years ago and Python 2.6 was released 8 years ago.

I would recommend to close this bug, as I don't think many novice linux users will use that old software.

Please let me know if someone disagree.
