Two things. One, I just updated listing Senthil as in charge of evaluating
the tools. Should go live in an hour or so (aside: I'm going to delete my
GitHub repo for the PEP so I don't have to keep track of two copies; can't
wait until we get this done enough to move the peps repo over).

Two, thanks for everyone who jumped on the GitHub blog post and posting
here! I noticed myself and was coming to comment when I noticed Matthias,
Nick, Nicolás, and Senthil had beaten me to it. :) As Senthil said, it's
very interesting to see this option open up to us and will need to see how
they do. Hopefully it will work out (or at least we can help GitHub fix
their tooling if they can't handle the cpython repo's deep history).
