This graphic is a good resource! (Aside: as part of our website
reboot, maybe we would like to have a similar graphic for Subversion
release and support cycles? A picture is worth 1000 words!)

In terms of which Py 3.x version we ultimately choose as the minimum
supported one going forward, we should decide sooner rather than later.
We should give everyone the earliest possible heads up in the form of a
"news" item on the site (and possibly an announcement email???), both
to let everyone know that 1.14-LTS will support Py 3.x+ and to state
that with Py 2 EOL, Py 2.7 and <3.x support will be phased out over the
next few releases.

Mark: How long (if known) is "a while"? Thanks...
