IMO, becoming a PEP editor is by invitation-only, as decided by consensus of
the current set of PEP editors. The current list of editors is exactly
equivalent to the members of the peps@ mailing list, currently:
Guido van Rossum
If there are editors who are not members of this mailing list, they should be!
If there are editors who want to retire and be removed from the list, please
let me know.

The latter, and it should be plural everywhere.
