Python builds started failing to download 2.7.12

Hi, we have a python 2.7.12 build that has started failing with the following error:

2.7.12 is not installed; attempting download
Downloading archive:
NaNs$ curl -sSf -o python-2.7.12.tar.bz2 ${archive_url}
curl: (22) The requested URL returned error: 404 Not Found

This is the only language-specific settings in our .travis.yml:

language: python

- 2.7.12

Either they dropped Python 2.7.12 support (there have been multiple releases since then),
or you were automatically moved to Xenial for which it was never supported.

Yes, it seems we were converted to xenial, and that Xenial does not support 2.7.12. Was there any communication of that other than the blog post? I don’t recall getting any notifications and I don’t follow the blog.

For anyone running into this problem, add

dist: trusty

to your .travis.yml.
