I know you are just looking for a compromise, but this shouldn't be it:
the PSF has deliberately stayed out of the actual Python engineering,
so the release that Benjamin makes is not done by the PSF (but by
Benjamin and his contributors :-).
I like the wording as it is (although I find the promise of five years
of bug fix releases a bit too strong).
