It is now 7 days until October 1, the deadline for coming up with Python Governance PEPs.

Some still relevant links:

https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-8001 Python Governance Voting Process
https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-8002 Open source governance survey

These are current ideas and proposals, some are placeholders still.

https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-8010 The BDFL Governance Model
https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-8011 The Council Governance Model (I'm claiming this PEP)
https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-8012 The Community Governance Model
https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-8013/ The External Council Governance Model
https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-8014/ The Commons Governance Model

I have some questions:

1. Is everyone still ok with the Oct 1 as deadline for coming up with governance PEPs?

2. How do we discuss these PEPs? 

I assume people will start threads about their PEPs to discuss them here (I'm also personally fine with discussing on Zulip, but I don't know how others feels about that). The one thing I would say is I would propose all discussion threads have a subject line that clearly denotes which PEP is being discussed to help keep it straight (e.g. "[PEP 8011] ..."). That way it's easy to keep the threads straight.

3. At the sprint, there's a small workgroup formed for coming up with the procedure to vote. How is that coming? Could someone please write up a brief summary? (perhaps as a separate email thread) I think it would be great to have this written up soon, before Oct 1.

Raymond agreed to write up the approach we all agreed upon in our little breakout group as a draft PEP so they can be presented here to make sure people overall are happy with the ideas we reached consensus on. I'm not sure what his ETA is on that, but we were tentatively aiming for the last half of November for a vote so there isn't a hard deadline to have it posted and agreed to necessarily within the week (although obviously we would want to make sure people have plenty of notice of when the voting will occur so people aren't taken by surprise).
