Well he also wrote and implemented PEP 562 (overriding __getattr__ and __dir__ on modules). I'd be happy to tell him to gain other developers' trust before barging into other areas. But isn't that how all core devs work by default?

Hi Guido,

Since the typing module is out of my interest area, I didn't notice
Ivan contributions, so it's hard for me to give an opinion.

Should I understand that he will mostly contribute to the typing
module? If (in the beginning?) we restrict him to the typing module, I
will simply rely on your judgment Guido. I know that you are following
the topic closely and so are very good to estimate his skills.

I'm not talking about technically restricting Ivan to the typing
module. It's more that I expect him to request an approval by other
core developers if he wants to touch other parts of CPython. In my
experience, developers are already doing that naturally, but I would
prefer to clarify this point.
