Now that PEP 572 is done, I don't ever want to have to fight so hard for aPEP and find that so many people despise my decisions.I would like to remove myself entirely from the decision process. I'llstill be there for a while as an ordinary core dev, and I'll still beavailable to mentor people -- possibly more available. But I'm basicallygiving myself a permanent vacation from being BDFL, and you all will be onyour own.After all that's eventually going to happen regardless -- there's stillthat bus lurking around the corner, and I'm not getting younger... (I'llspare you the list of medical issues.)I am not going to appoint a successor.So what are you all going to do? Create a democracy? Anarchy? Adictatorship? A federation?I'm not worried about the day to day decisions in the issue tracker or onGitHub. Very rarely I get asked for an opinion, and usually it's notactually important. So this can just be dealt with as it has always been.The decisions that most matter are probably- How are PEPs decided- How are new core devs inductedWe may be able to write up processes for these things as PEPs (maybe thosePEPs will form a kind of constitution). But here's the catch. I'm going totry and let you all (the current committers) figure it out for yourselves.Note that there's still the CoC -- if you don't like that document youronly option might be to leave this group voluntarily. Perhaps there areissues to decide like when should someone be kicked out (this could bebanning people from python-dev or python-ideas too, since those are alsocovered by the CoC).Finally. A reminder that the archives of this list are public (https://mail.python.org/pipermail/python-committers/) although membershipis closed (limited to core devs).I'll still be here, but I'm trying to let you all figure something out foryourselves. I'm tired, and need a very long break.
