Thanks! Feel free to mostly copy https://groups.google.com/g/pants-devel/c/q7Qa0fEs6D0/m/YJtmbCbwAAAJ. The important thing to mention is something along these lines:
As mentioned in https://groups.google.com/g/pants-devel/c/fIPGGVFlnC0/m/wJLlujKDAQAJ, we plan for this to be the last release to support running Pants through a Python 3.6 interpreter. Please see that email or the deprecation warning for more info, and let us know if this will be a blocker.
Feel free to tweak that wording also. I struggle with knowing how to communicate this is purely what you run the tool with, not what your own code needs to be
There was lots of confusion with Python 2 -> 3 about that, so maybe it is worth being explicit about that again here…maybe could be like an asterisk or something with a note at the bottom
