Python 2.3 is not supported anymore. There are no bug fixes, even for security issues, so I’m afraid this error cannot be fixed.
msg115049 - (view) Author: Jayesh (JayeshMahajan) Date: 2010-08-27 01:09
Thanks for the quick updates. Which python version is currently supported?
msg115053 - (view) Author: Martin v. Löwis (loewis) * (Python committer) Date: 2010-08-27 06:07
Python 2.7 and Python 3.1 are supported for bug fixes.
msg115100 - (view) Author: Éric Araujo (eric.araujo) * (Python committer) Date: 2010-08-27 15:40
Bug fixes also go into the development version, 3.2 (branch named py3k).

(http://python.org/download/ tells what the stable versions are, but http://python.org/ does not clearly.)
