If you use Eventlet on Python 2.5 - bad news.
Sample script to check:

# relies on virtualenv activated or eventlet installed globally
if python --version 2>&1 |fgrep -q 'Python 2.5' ; then
  if pip freeze |fgrep -q eventlet ; then
    echo 'bad news, read on'
    echo ok
  echo ok

As discussed here https://github.com/eventlet/eventlet/issues/6
we're going to drop Python 2.5 support in some near future.

Previous releases are still available for download in PyPi.
