As far as I am aware there is a topic per PEP on discourse that has had discussion mostly related to the specific PEP. I’m not aware of any general “weighing the options” topic on any discussion forum.  I think so far it’s mostly just been people asking for refinements or changes to a specific PEP to make it more clear and/or more tolerable to that person.

Incase unfamiliarity with discourse is causing an issue in people finding the topics, and that’s what folks are stumbling with, here are links to each of the PEP specific topics:

- PEP 8010 - The Singular Leader - https://discuss.python.org/t/pep-8010-the-singular-leader/188
- PEP 8011 - Leadership by a Trio of Pythonistas - https://discuss.python.org/t/pep-8011-leadership-by-trio-of-pythonistas-top-or-simply-trio/199
- PEP 8012 - The Community Model - https://discuss.python.org/t/pep-8012-the-community-model/156
- PEP 8013 - The External Council Model - https://discuss.python.org/t/pep-8013-the-external-council-governance-model/181
- PEP 8014 - The Commons Model - https://discuss.python.org/t/pep-8014-the-commons-model/173
- PEP 8015 - “Organization of the Python Community” - https://discuss.python.org/t/pep-8015-organization-of-the-python-community/193
There is also a draft PEP, PEP 8016 - “The boringest possible steering committee model” - which is more of a proto-PEP at the moment, but discussion about it can be located at https://discuss.python.org/t/working-discussion-for-pep-8016-the-boringest-possible-steering-council-model/333.

Each thread seems to have somewhere between 30-50 total posts, so all in there’s maybe ~300 posts to read across all of them (and many of those posts are pretty short).
