[python-committers] Proposal: an explicit, time-limited moratorium on finalizing any governance decisions

I am in favor of a time limit. Yet, October 1 seems a bit too long for the
initial governance decision (i.e. how to decide how to decide). My
perspective, based on transitions in non-profits and the corporate world,
is that the longer an organization let's it draw out then fear,
uncertainty, and doubt creep in.
We have PEP 10 in place for a strawperson vote. It seems as good as
anything to use to determine how to make a decision. Perhaps set a 30 day
deadline to submit decision process recommendations. Then take a
strawperson poll on each and at the core sprint create a time window for
specific proposals on structure be submitted before October 1.
My concern if we leave how to decide until at least Oct 1 that the
likelihood of completing this year is fairly low.
