Not only do I think our first major decision should be how we make decisions now, but as the release manager of the first versions of Python to ever be developed without a dictator at the helm, I feel responsible for them not to be viewed by future archeologists as the releases where the project went downhill ;-)

The fact I'm midway through a 5 week coast-to-coast road trip doesn't help.

Let's not rush anything at this point. This includes the release schedule which I think is wise to keep intact through this transition. See PEP 569 for 3.8.

I'm +1 to an Informational PEP around the state of the art in project governance.
