Lightning 2.1

Linux x86 and x64 comm-central lightning nightly builds are failing again. 
This time because of incorrect Python version:

> checking for Python version >= 2.6 but not 3.x... 
> configure: error: Cannot build on Python 2.5. You need at least 2.6.

WINNT 5.2 comm-central lightning nightly failed with the very same error today. Could you upgrade it too?
I've changed the path to use python2.7. I might need to install some additional modules, we'll see about that in the next build run. I'd appreciate if you could monitor the builds and file a new bug or comment on this one once its through in case there are some python modules missing.

Win32 comm-central and comm-aurora lightning nightly failed with

Installed pywin32, lets hope it works. Thanks for the report!

Win32 comm-aurora lightning nightly build succeeded. Win32 comm-central lightning nightly build failed. Seems it still uses the old Python version 2.5:

Summary: Lightning linux build fail 'configure: error: Cannot build on Python 2.5. You need at least 2.6.' → Lightning linux & win32 build fail 'configure: error: Cannot build on Python 2.5. You need at least 2.6.'
Probably needs a clobber only. I've started deleting files, one of the next builds will probably work.

Win32 comm-central lightning nightly build still fails with the error from Comment 6: https://tinderbox.mozilla.org/showlog.cgi?log=CalendarTrunk/1351246356.1351248056.23116.gz#err3

Todays error message indicates that only Python 2.5 is installed / found on the server: https://tinderbox.mozilla.org/showlog.cgi?log=CalendarTrunk/1351591200.1351592340.5383.gz#err0

Aurora is green, central has moved to Thunderbird build infra. I think we can close this bug?

Error shows on https://tinderbox.mozilla.org/showbuilds.cgi?tree=Calendar-Aurora

Maybe we can just stop the builders now that bug 793628 is activated for comm-aurora?
I've stopped the aurora builders on our infra and removed the *-xpi directories, therefore this should be WFM with the new infra.
