It's not factually wrong: python.org/dev/peps/pep-0373/#main...

2.7.18 is the last release of 2.x, based on the code from January 1st 2020 - no more changes/updates will be accepted and the code is frozen. They will make one more official release of 2.x based on the January 1st 2020 code (2.7.18) and that release will be more ceremony than anything else.
