Well, I certainly agree with the intent... especially, as you say, for LTS users who effectively cement themselves to a version for the long haul.

Might as well remind them there are security updates in things other than OpenSSL, Java, and Django :)

Hi,

I was wondering if Django could or should nudge Python 2 users toward
the latest stable release of 2.7.x? For example, we could require at
least 2.7.8 by removing the fallback pbkdf2() implementation in
django.utils.crypto [0]. I guess part of my feeling is that if you're
running 1.11 LTS for at least another three years, you should really try
to use the latest Python 2 as it has security improvements and fixes
compared to the older 2.7.x releases.

As a data point, Ubuntu 14.04 ships with Python 2.7.6 and 16.04 ships
with Python 2.7.12.
