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

I appreciate and respect the importance of these decisions. The dates that
I suggested, and I am not anchored to any of them, were not selected to
rush or be hasty. Instead, it was respect for our time together (at least
some of us) at the September sprint and to have all proposals on the table
by that time.

You make a good point about European holidays. I am not opposed to delaying
a couple of weeks (due date for proposals by the September sprint start).

My biggest concern is that dragging this on into the new year will result
in more bikeshedding, more uncertainty, and less confidence in the
developer community decision making ability.

Hoping we can compromise on a happy medium on a timeline.
