New submission from abcdef <x at mailinator.com>:

FAQ "How stable is Python" https://docs.python.org/3/faq/general.html#how-stable-is-python" states

"There are two recommended production-ready versions at this point in time, because at the moment there are two branches of stable releases: 2.x and 3.x. Python 3.x may be less useful than 2.x, since currently there is more third party software available for Python 2 than for Python 3. Python 2 code will generally not run unchanged in Python 3."

According to git blame, this is from 2009. Could we change this to recommend Python 3 over Python 2 now?
