Greg proposed something like "Code changes to support platforms beyond

Almost :-) I don't understand the "without notice". I guess Greg meant "without deprecation process". Removal of support code should be discussed on a ticket and then listed in PEP 11 and mentioned in the NEWS file, as usual.
I guess I was trying to convey that we may not even have a way to know that we're breaking something on a non-tier1/2 platform anyways so "without notice" was just me trying to set people's expectations. We don't go out of our way to _try_ and break things most of the time. "without a deprecation process" is also reasonable wording. Feel free to adopt those words.
Ideally we try to have discussion somewhere relevant when we _know_ we'd intentionally be removing support for something (for example of why: See the debacle that happened when dropping Solaris support was proposed).
