I've accepted some PEPs:
SA 3120 Using UTF-8 as the default source encoding von Löwis
SA 3121 Extension Module Initialization & Finalization von Löwis
SA 3123 Making PyObject_HEAD conform to standard C von Löwis
SA 3127 Integer Literal Support and Syntax Maupin
SA 3129 Class Decorators Winter
(3129 is listed for completeness, I think it was already approved a
few days ago.)
and rejected some others:
SR 3125 Remove Backslash Continuation Jewett
SR 3126 Remove Implicit String Concatenation Jewett
SR 3130 Access to Current Module/Class/Function Jewett
I'm looking forward to seeing these implemented in the p3yk branch
(and a few others that have been accepted for a while now, e.g. 3109,
Other status updates:
3101 (string formatting) -- Talin will continue to shepherd this in
cooperation with the authors of the sandbox implementation.
3116 (new I/O) -- I'm slowly chipping away at implementing this. The
PEP is behind in tracking the actual implementation.
3119, 3124, 3141 (ABCs, GFs) -- I'm still thinking about this; 3119
and 3141 are still awaiting major rewrites and 3124 is under heavy
3118 (buffer protocol) -- This is long, but I trust Travis. Maybe he
should just submit an implementation (hint, hint).
3128 (BList) -- I'll leave this for Raymond Hettinger to review.
3131 (non-ASCII identifiers) -- I'm leaning towards rejecting.
3132 (extended iterable unpacking) -- I'm leaning towards accepting.
I'm still hoping Raymond will check his draft PEPs in by Sunday night.
