My proposal is taking into consideration The PSF's mission and diversity statement. I will not remove the diversity clause from PEP 8011.

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 would remind people that it's well documented that diverse group make better decisions. And given that there is a historical bias, often unconscious, towards white men I think it's good to try to counter this bias explicitly.

I should also think that "merit-based" criteria tend to reinforce the existing unconscious bias.
