Hi folks - 

Per PEP 13, a new Steering Council will be voted in after each feature release. As Victor has pointed out, 3.8 is scheduled for 2019-10-21 so we should start talking about the election.

The Steering Council discussed this and the timeline proposed for the vote is as follows:

* The nomination period will begin Nov 1, 2019 (do not post nominations until then)
* Nomination period will end Nov 15, 2019 
* Voting will begin Dec 1, 2019
* Voting will end Dec 15

Nominations will be collected via https://discuss.python.org/ (more details to follow). I will be handling all the email notifications related to the election and Ernest will continue to run the elections. I will send more information out in a couple of weeks.

In the meantime, don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns.

Thank you,

Ewa
