My proposal is taking into consideration The PSF's mission and diversity statement. I will not remove the diversity clause from PEP 8011.
I cannot comment on what you actually have in PEP 8011 as diversity clause, since the page is just a placeholder at the moment, but please take into consideration that we're *not* debating a council which is to represent the Python community or other group of people.
The council is intended to be a technical body for steering language design and needs experts as members who we all trust and respect to make good decisions - regardless of any other criteria and, of course, open to all core developers, regardless of background (which is what the PSF diversity statement is all about).
To save us all trouble of discussing this particular issue, for those of you who disagree completely, and have other ideas about how you'd like Python to be governed and who should be in it, you can do one or more of the following:
- not vote on my PEP
- vote on the other PEPs
- write their own PEP
I think we're grown up enough to work on these PEPs together and in the usual spirit of coming up with good solutions. We owe this to the Python community at large who will be affected by whatever we decide. Personal agendas should put be aside for the time being.
