Python 2.7

Hi all,

I tried to compile Varnish 5.1.1 on CentOS 6, but the configure script reported to me that Python 2.7 is now required (CentOS 6 only has Python 2.6).
This came as a surprise to me, because it wasn't mentioned in the changes (
Why is 2.7 needed? If I do not use the VMODs, will I be affected by this?

Thanks & Regards,
