>> rationales, historical discussion, and transition plans etc...

I can't make sense of how these links are a response to point #1?
I wrote the PEP summary page you're linking me too, so I'm aware of it  :  )
This summary page is *not* the Specs idea.
Maybe a picture is worth a thousand words here.... and will require a draft
PR against the PyPUG to make it clear to everyone

> 2) keep using the PEP process for adjusting or adding to the specs
>> and assuming that approach, I raised a few "publishing" questions:
>> 1) do we publish/render all supported versions of a certain spec, or just
>> the latest
>> 2) if we publish them all, then how?  do we maintain separate documents
>> for distinct versions? if not, how do we do it?
> Tagged [semver 3.0 (+1)] versions can be managed *individually* with
> readthedocs.

sorry, I don't follow your point.
