I have some notes in progress for a third revision of the PEP, but I don't think there's anything critical in them, and certainly nothing that need delay asking for a BDFL-Delegate.
Brandt, if you are reading this, do you have any objection to me applying to the Steering Council for a BDFL-delegate, or would you prefer me to wait?
Please go ahead and send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I jumped the gun a bit and discussed this proposal with the SC when we had some extra time in our meeting. The general sentiment is neutral to positive, provided the operators chosen are | and |=. The sentiment for + and += was distinctly negative. There were also some mumblings about the text of the PEP, but nothing that couldn't be fixed by some editing. I think Nick is going to send you a PR or at least a detailed critique.
There was also a question about OrderedDict. I haven't thought much about it; I suppose someone should think about what's the right thing to do here. Maybe ditto for some other common subclasses of dict, like defaultdict.
Good luck with the PEP!
