Hmm, so voting opens immediately after the PEPs are finalised? No
discussion/debate period before that? Maybe I misunderstood, I'd
assumed that this would be more similar to an election process, with a
period of canvassing support and/or debating the strengths and
weaknesses of the proposals, leading up to a vote.

I don’t think there is anything stopping people from doing that right now (and honestly, right now seems like the *right* time to do that if it’s going to happen, so that the proposals can evolve based on any discussion that comes out of that). Waiting until the proposals are set in stone seems like a less useful implementation of that idea.

I suspect the reason that people aren’t doing that, is just nobody has started that discussion for one reason or another.
