git-598354c0ad4198daff279c34a96f42e4d91fb4e6.tar.bz2 support Python 2.5
Python 2.5 and older do not accept None as the first argument to translate() and complain with: TypeError: expected a character buffer object As suggested by Pete Wyckoff, let's just replace the call to translate() with a regex search which should be more clear and more portable. This allows git-p4 to be used with Python 2.5. Signed-off-by: Brandon Casey <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
