I was not aware of the upcoming upgrade to 2.6. Thank you for pointing this out.

And you have now even applied that patches to Debian med as I have seen on the svn commit
list. This is great! I am very busy over the upcoming weeks and wait for a 1.5.5 release
of the mgltools prior to preparing new packages. Should the maturation of python 2.6 be
any earlier, then I'll of course be immediately triggered.
I CCed to Sargis Dallakyan from the upstream developers and co-Debian maintainer. Sargis,
are you foreseeing any difficulties with Python 2.6?
And, Scot, if you are caring more deeply for the MGLtools than for the technical
compatibilities, I am certain that also Sargis would very much welcome your helping hands.
Many thanks and best regards,
