>The language maintainers themselves have clarified that introducing breaking changes was a mistake in hindsight and that it will never happen again.

What are you referring to? I haven't heard or read any core developers say anything close to 'introducing breaking changes was a mistake in hindsight'.

I recall reading something along those lines, but I could be mistaken!

There's a big difference between 'Python 3 was a mistake' and 'we won't make Python 4 like Python 3'. This article is saying the latter (and implicitly argues against the former).

100% sure I read that from one of the core devs but cannot find the reference.
