I supported Barry's proposal. I can definitely understand   Łukasz's and
Antoine's stance here.  One of the important part of Barry's proposal was
removal of "for life" part.

Most of us are volunteers contributing to python. A leader with ultimate
say on language design, governance burden to steer the comittee is going to
be challenging and stressful for "anyone" in this model proposed by Barry.

Thank you,
