[New-bugs-announce] [issue27390] state of the 3.3 branch unclear

New submission from Thomas Klausner:

https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0398/ mentions that a 3.3.7 release was planned for February 27, 2016. It appears this never happened.

It also mentions that there will be source-only security updates for 3.3.x until September 2017. However, it appears that for example https://bugs.python.org/issue22417 from 2014 was never fixed for 3.3.x.
(perhaps it did not affect 3.3.x, but it affected 2.7 and 3.4, so the chances are high it did)

I'm not particularly interested in a release -- I'm fine with declaring 3.3.x end-of-life, but the documentation should match the reality.
