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:
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.
