I've only been on this list for about a year. This PEP (and others
like it) has been in motion for quite a while. I think the blog would
miss far more people than the mailing list would and I'm not sure I
agree with "how quickly things change". There doesn't seem to be much
content for the blog and it seems like something that would just
become neglected. What topics do you really think would be better
suited for a blog post than a message to here and related announcement
