FWIW, after Martin's explanation, and considering the annoyance of
keeping updates sync'ed (can PEPs be amended after acceptance, or only
superseded by a new PEP, like IETF RFCs?), I tend to support Barry's
suggestion of a brief listing of current releases and next planned,
and "Python policy concerning release planning is defined by [the
current version of] PEPxxx", with a link.
