The Python one only contains a release schedule, and gets updated later
with a small subset of the release notes:
https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0494/. I guess its main audience is
packagers and companies needing to plan ahead supporting a new Python

What would you like to put in such a NEP?

For 1.18 I think the main things are further changes to numpy.random and
the dispatch system. For 1.19 not sure, that still feels far away.
