I think you've confused Mariatta with me here :)

Yeah it looks like people don't oppose having October 1st as our first
*soft* sync point as long as we don't set any other deadlines right

To sum up:

* We want everybody who has ideas about future Python governance model
to submit their initial proposals by that date.

* The discussion will start around October 1st and we'll figure out
what we do next (and when) based on its outcome.

I think this plan is reasonably relaxed, but at the same time will
gently motivate us to move forward.
