Is this draft any better?
"The Python Software Foundation officially supports the current
stable major release of Python. By "supports" we mean that the PSF
will produce bug fix releases of this version, currently Python 2.5.
We may release patches for earlier versions if necessary, such as to
fix security problems, but we generally do not make releases of such
unsupported versions. Patch releases of earlier Python versions may
be made available through third parties, including OS vendors."
