Sorry to bring up this old topic.

I'm trying to decide how to handle discussions for PEP 581, and I'm open to try out new things :)
Are we all still content with posting to python-dev? 
I was thinking in addition to a thread in python-dev, I want to allow discussions to take place in zulip, under a new #pep581 stream.
Will that be ok?

PEP 572 is a language-wide change.  Presumably those who don't want to
follow discussions will still want to give their opinion (or informal
vote) at the end.  Which will give rise to other discussions...

What strikes me is that we have such long-lasting and intense discussion
about a feature which, whether approved or not, will not significantly
change Python's popularity or appeal or ability to solve real-world

Perhaps this is a case where « Nature abhors a vacuum » : we're getting
focussed on whatever comes up to fill the narrative of Python's evolution.
