> +# cloud-init stable-18.4: last python 2.6 support
> +This branch (stable-18.4) is an unmaintained branch cut from upstream git
> tag 18.4.
Maybe not unmaintained, but a python2.6 related bug-fix only branching to aid
older distro releases which require python2.6 cloud-init support.
> +The intent of this stable branch:
> +* It is the last revision on cloud-init that fully supports python 2.6.
> +* No ongoing upstream maintenance or feature work is planned for stable-18.4
> +* stable-18.4 will continue to be hosted for community-driven python 2.6
> +* For ongoing upstream cloud-init feature development, propose branches
> against 'master'
