You mean, "doesn't list the platforms that are still supported"?

That's on purpose: the point of PEP 11 is to warn current users about
forthcoming changes, not to track support status for specific platforms.

Python never worked really well on HP-UX, but it worked in some form
for a long time. Don't know whether that makes it a "supported
platform". Accepting patches for HP-UX is fine with me. It would be
better if some committer could confirm that the patch actually works,
and also confirm that it doesn't break other releases of HP-UX.
