The deprecation should be removed from Python 2.7: os.popen() will not be removed from Python 2 because 2.7 is the last major version of the 2.x branch. And os.popen() will stay in Python 3: see #6490 and the Guido's message

Yes, os.popen() must be documented in Python 3. Do you want to write a patch to restore the doc?
