FWIW, Eric Smith and myself (co-"owners" of the mailing list) supported this

I think Steven's objection was me wanting to state in the devguide that core devs would adhere to the CoC in all Python-related interactions in the community regardless of whether that interaction explicitly occurred under the purview of the CoC, which is a stronger statement than just this mailing list being under the CoC.
