I have not responded before since Guido's approval seems sufficient ;-).
The main concrete step is that one of the repository supervisors add 
his  access key.

409, not 309: http://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0409/

You, Barry, and Guido, who have also worked on enum, know him best and 
are the principle supporters of this proposal. I gather that you all 
agree that he has shown the 'cooperativeness' necessary to a collective

As 'stoneleaf', he has been active on 12  issues since June 2010 (nosy 
on 2 more). One patch is open and 5 have been applied (3 by Nick, 1 each 
by Antoine and R. David),  I would say that the enum code, which appears 
to be on the way to acceptance,  is equivalent to a few more typical 
issue patches.

FWIW, This is enough for a +1 from me.

That is the enum PEP.  http://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0435/
I consider a (nontrivial) reference implementation to be a direct 
contribution even if he has not yet been pushing text changes.
