Hi, there,

I read the following comments on

> Support Python versions:
> At this time the only supported and recommended Python versions are 2.3.4 and 2.3.5.
> Using Python 2.4.X is not supported and not recommended at this time. Python 2.4.X will be supported when a security audit took place. This means that you are using Python 2.4 + Zope 2.8 at your own risk. This warning also applies to binary packages that install Zope packages together with a system wide Python 2.4 installation (e.g. Fedora, SuSE...). Such installations are in general not supported. In addition there some third-party products and Python packages that don't work with Python 2.4 and can cause trouble when using Python 2.4.

Is 2.3.5 the only possibe python 2.3 series ?

Or if there are the way to install zope2.8.7 on python 2.3.4, please
inform me.
