fwiw, the text in question comes from a template maintained by the Release
Team. I've updated it with that correction; thanks. We're probably going

That sounds like it could be a good idea. If we're going to have a
standard form of the paragraph, I think it's probably better if the press
team decide that and we can update the point release template to match.
