Naveen -

The current master branch on the riak-python-client repo targets Riak 2.0, not Riak 1.4.x any more.

The latest released client is 2.0.3 (not be be confused with Riak 2.0) which is available on PyPI or on GitHub with tag “2.0.3”  This has the BadStatusLine fix already in it.

Hi Sean,

I am also the person who is using  riak client on production with python 2.6.x.

On one  of our testing environment we have  python 2.6.6, riak-1.4.7  and python client  riak-1.5.1-py2.6.
There frequently I am getting  httplib.BadStatusLine causing  RiakError: 'could not get a response'
after 3 retries. I found the fix
That fix got merged into master branch, Can I use master branch with riak-1.4.7

In the process of developing the Python client for 2.0 features, we're running into issues with Python 2.6.x (specifically related to pyOpenSSL and its dependencies). Is anyone out there using Python 2.6 in production still and wanting to use the Riak client?
