I'm guessing something along these lines... but as you'll see I'm making
some assumptions in areas where we haven't yet reached a consensus, so
please speak up if you disagree with something!!!

Support for Python 3.x:

Python 3.x and newer are now supported by Subversion's swig-py bindings and
automated test suite. Python 2.7 is still supported.

Support for Python 2.7 to be phased out:

As of 1 January 2020, Python 2.7 has reached end of life. This means that
Python 2.7 will no longer receive maintenance releases. All users are
encouraged to move to Python 3.

Subversion 1.14 continues to support Python 2.7 to ease the transition to
Python 3 for those who have not yet made the jump. As Subversion 1.14 is a
Long Term Support (LTS) release, this gives system operators four
additional years of Subversion support for Python 2.7. Note, however, that
Subversion 1.15 and beyond will gradually phase out support for Python 2.7.
