ISTR there are plenty of PEPs that never get posted to python-ideas because they are discussed on a separate list.

There are often better venues for the initial discussion (such as security-sig, distutils-sig or datetime-sig), but I think that's orthogonal from posting the full text of a PEP.

I don't think that the original rationale for posting the full text of a PEP to a mailing list still applies. The raw text is on GitHub in the python/peps repo, and the formatted text is on python.org. We're not some kind of bureaucratic org that pretends to still live in the world of paper and pencil.
That said, if the aim is to keep discussion in another place (such as github), you really don't want copies floating around any other mailing lists. Eventually I'd hope it comes through for final review though, as I'm sure a number of us are unlikely to click through to github unless we have a specific interest in the topic.

IMO if you can't be bothered to click through on GitHub you forfeit your right to comment. (Which isn't a right anyway, it's a privilege.)
