I've updated the text of PEP 588 (https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0588/)
with several items under "Migration Plan" section:
- Hire a professional project manager to help ensure the success of the
- Create a playground issue tracker on GitHub to experiment and test the
- The work on new CLA host is currently stalled. (more details:
- We've created a new Python Triage team, taking advantage of GitHub's beta
Triage role. We need a better guideline/criteria on how to promote people
to the Python triage team.
- A test repo containing proposed GitHub labels have been created by Carol
Willing. It can be reviewed at:
are welcome. I would suggest discussing the labels in Discourse
<https://discuss.python.org/> under core-workflow category.
- we should create a separate branch on GitHub with info about the new
workflow. This should be done ahead of the actual migration, not after.
Please re-read PEP 588 in its entirety. Any questions or concerns about PEP
588 can be discussed here in python-dev, or Discourse under core-workflow
(FYI, I'm cross-posting this from core-mentorship. If you'd like to reply,
please do so there.)
Following the recent discussion on core-mentorship about beginning
contribution, the difficulties it entails and how to improve the situation,
I'd like to start a process of improving the situation.
As a first step, I'd like to collect as many stories about beginning to
contribute to Python. This includes stories about failures to do so; in
fact, those would be most useful!
I'm intentionally leaving this very open; I'd like to hear anything people
have to tell about their experiences, with as little guidance as possible.
Specifically, at this point, I'm not (yet) looking for specific suggestions
for how to improve the situation.
So, following Guido's call (on core-mentorship) to publicly post such
stories, please help us collect as many such accounts as possible! Post
your own stories, and more importantly, reach out to others who could share
their own stories and ask them to do so!
Those who feel that posting publicly would require too much work, or just
don't feel comfortable doing so, are invited to write to me personally;
I'll use the information anonymously if asked to.
