I just found out that PEP 430 came up again and was approved, but only because of another website. After that I looked back through my email only to find mention via python-checkins. Aren't PEPs typically acted on here on python-dev?
I mention this because I was writing up a blog.python.org post about the (somewhat recent) Sphinx theme change and the change to add a version dropdown which was pushed yesterday. I was about to wrap it up and schedule it for tomorrow when I found out about 430, which I'm now including.
PEP 1 states that proposals must be sent to python-dev after discussion on python-ideas. As for acceptance, PEP 1 says:
Once the authors have completed a PEP, they may request a review for style and consistency from the PEP editors. However, the content and final acceptance of the PEP must be requested of the BDFL, usually via an email to the python-dev mailing list.
When a PEP is Accepted, Rejected or Withdrawn, the PEP should be updated accordingly. In addition to updating the status field, at the very least the Resolution header should be added with a link to the relevant post in the python-dev mailing list archives.
So yes, python-dev needs to be the place where PEPs are discussed and accepted.
