Now, the specific outcome of the process means that more work needs to be done. So we have a *second* PEP, and we have a lack of volunteers that help implementing it. The second PEP hasn't been approved yet (as it isn't complete, yet), so migration to hg is stalled. The primary volunteer (Dirkjan) has indicated that he can't help with that specific issue, so other volunteers need to step forward, or we cannot move to hg.
I don't recall Dirkjan saying he can't help with that issue - was it a lack of time, or a lack of understanding the problem/lack of a Windows environment?
The problem I see is a lack of agreement about exactly what the solution entails. I believe there is general agreement win32text needs to be enhanced to support versioned 'rules'. But even with that, the only option I see is a truly cross-platform extension to implement these rules which every Python committer, regardless of operating-system, is expected to use - but that doesn't seem the consensus.
As mentioned, I'm willing to lend manpower for this once there is agreement on something workable...
