I have been programming in python for about 6 years now. However, I am a newbie to this mailing list. My observation in the last couple of days is that this is literally an explosion of ideas and in various degrees. I am wondering if there is a common place or site where the ideas that went beyond proposal and got heads up for implementation have been listed. Are they consolidated somewhere to be discussed further ? Or is it something I have to scrape through mailing list archives ?
There are many of those. I would recommend browsing through the PEP archive, which is proposals that got to a certain level of maturity and were also controversial enough to document; also, the What's New for each Python version lists the changes that were accepted, and often links to further information.
A lot of small changes aren't given PEPs or even much discussion here; they are discussed entirely on the issue tracker, or in a subgroup such as the typing SIG or the Python Packaging Authority. Those sorts of changes should still show up in What's New, for the most part.
