Why python hasn't been updated to 2.4.1? That version is out from March 30, 2005 (5 months).
I'm supposed that is by 3rd packages that depend on 2.3, but so some packages are being old.

Why a lot of people has changed from debian to gentoo???
It has been for the same thing (packages out of date)

IF you bothered to look, you would have seen Python 2.4.1 is in portage just ~arch masked

Thus there are still bugs with it

I know that Python 2.4.1 is in ~arch.

The problem is that had passed a lof months without being stable in gentoo, because python 2.4.1 is very stable else question it in #python.

It goes by 5 months for a package very usefull and it's a lot of time.
And it isn't the only case.
