Ok, I’ve updated the PEP. You can see a diff at https://github.com/python/peps/pull/74/files or the entire PEP at https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0527/ once that updated. However the primary differences are:

* Added Nick Coghlan as the BDFL Delegate (Thanks Nick!).
* Expanded upon rationale for dropping everything but sdist/wheel/egg.
* Allow an sdist to be either .tar.gz or .zip, but still drop all other formats.

Hopefully that can adequately address Marc-Andre’s concerns for the removal of the other file types, and the inclusion of .zip will address other folk’s concerns about losing .zip.
