Not really.  The only thing delayed was the final release,2.7.18, so it 
could be done during PyCon.  The end of core developer maintenance 
occurred on schedule.

"Effective January 1, 2020, no new bug reports, fixes, or changes will 
be made to Python 2."

Any further changes should be cleanup patches by or with the  approval 
of the release manager, preparing for the release candidate and then the 
final release.
