https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Python#Version_release_dates cites
http://python-history.blogspot.com/2009/01/brief-timeline-of-python.html as
a reference (for Python versions up to 2.6 and 3.0):

- 0.9 - 1991
- 1.0 - 1994
- 2.0 - 2000
- 3.0 - 2008
  - 3.7 - 2018


Maybe it would be most productive for us to discuss the fields in the
proposed citation?
