Also, not to be a complete slacker, I'd like to add to this list;

- How can I help as an external lib maintainer?
- Do you even want us to get involved before the final draft? Or wait until
internal discussion finishes?

> Hi all,
> During the discussion about NEP-35, there have been lots of
> discussions around the NEP process itself. In the interest of allowing
> people who are mostly interested in this discussion and to avoid
> drifting so much off-topic in that thread, I'm starting this new
> thread to discuss the NEP procedure.
> A few questions that have been raised so far:
> - Is the NEP Template [1] a guideline to be strictly followed or a
> suggestion for authors?
> - Who should decide when a NEP is sufficiently clear?
> - Should a NEP PR be merged at all until it's sufficiently clear or
> should it only be merged even in Draft state only after it's
> sufficiently clear?
> - What parts of the NEP are necessary to be clear for everyone? Just
> Abstract? Motivation and Scope? Everything, including the real
> technical details of implementation?
> - Would it be possible to have proof-readers -- preferably people who
> are not at all involved in the NEP's topic?
> Please feel free to comment on that and add any major points I might
> have missed.
> Best,
> Peter
