Hi Nicholas, 

I'm running debian and see only as the newest available for debian on 
the downloads page.

Any idea, is the v6.3.2 tarball up there with no distro specified, because it's 
designed to run properly on debian without modification ??

We don't provide support for such old release (mainly due to the
maintainer migration some months ago). Could you please try with v6.3.2
and/or current master?

Python before 2.6 are not supported anymore. That beeing said, you can
safely run on python 2.5 with basic TTY ui and no SSL, even with the
current dev branch (I do it myself).
