Python 2.6.9 is the final security-only source-only maintenance
release of the Python 2.6 series. With its release on October 29,
2013, all official support for Python 2.6 has ended. Python 2.6 is no
longer being maintained for any purpose.

-- PEP 361

Python 2.6 went out of support four years ago, or earlier if you
depend on published binaries. If by "stable" you mean that it's
utterly static, then go use Python 1.5 - it's been stable for longer.

I'm with Steve on this. Python 2.6 is ancient.
