Sorry to bring up this old topic.

I'm trying to decide how to handle discussions for PEP 581, and I'm open to
try out new things :)
Are we all still content with posting to python-dev?
I was thinking in addition to a thread in python-dev, I want to allow
discussions to take place in zulip, under a new #pep581 stream.
Will that be ok?
