File Doc/whatsnew/2.7.rst (right):

http://bugs.python.org/review/21569/diff/12000/Doc/whatsnew/2.7.rst#newcode84
Doc/whatsnew/2.7.rst:84: to the Python 3.x series. However, while there is a
large common subset
Maybe you should make clear(er) from the beginning that "last major release"
means that, while bugs are still fixed, no new features are added to 2.7.
IME many users (even developers) are not aware of this, and even if they might
know that there won't be a 2.8, they don't know that no new features are added.

http://bugs.python.org/review/21569/diff/12000/Doc/whatsnew/2.7.rst#newcode93
Doc/whatsnew/2.7.rst:93: been ported to Python 3.x. The full expected lifecycle
of the Python 2.7
Some of these .x are unnecessary.

http://bugs.python.org/review/21569/diff/12000/Doc/whatsnew/2.7.rst#newcode101
Doc/whatsnew/2.7.rst:101: and other bug fixes) until at least 2020.
This is somewhat redundant with the previous paragraph.

http://bugs.python.org/review/21569/diff/12000/Doc/whatsnew/2.7.rst#newcode113
Doc/whatsnew/2.7.rst:113: on making effective use of the Python Package Index.
This could be made more concise by simply saying that even though no new
features are added to 2.7, it is possible to use PyPI to get updated modules and
even Py3 backports.

http://bugs.python.org/review/21569/diff/12000/Doc/whatsnew/2.7.rst#newcode151
Doc/whatsnew/2.7.rst:151: (backported by Alex Gaynor in :issue:`21306` as part
of :pep:`466`)
IIRC IDLE got some enhancements too, and some new -3 warnings have been added
(or will be added).
Maybe it should be clarified that things like new modules/features/syntaxes
won't be included.

http://bugs.python.org/review/21569/diff/12000/Doc/whatsnew/2.7.rst#newcode182
Doc/whatsnew/2.7.rst:182: by calling ``warnings.simplefilter('default')``.
FWIW DeprecationWarnings are already re-enabled while running unittests, so this
is useful only while running/testing the code manually.
