[Python-Dev] Move idle PEPs to status deferred
Wed, 1 Nov 2000 17:54:07 -0500 (EST)
We should start working on any PEPs that are going to be considered
for Python 2.1. There are a bunch of old PEPs that have been
assigned and then ignored. You have marked many of them as deferred.
We should assign new authors for the PEPs we care about and move all
the other deferred PEPs somewhere else in the index.
The following PEPs have been inactive for at least two months:
I 2 pep-0002.txt Procedure for Adding New Modules Raymond
S 202 pep-0202.txt List Comprehensions Peters
SD 205 pep-0205.txt Weak References Drake
I 206 pep-0206.txt 2.0 Batteries Included Zadka
SD 207 pep-0207.txt Rich Comparisons Ascher
SD 208 pep-0208.txt Reworking the Coercion Model Ascher
SD 209 pep-0209.txt Adding Multidimensional Arrays Ascher
SD 210 pep-0210.txt Decoupling the Interpreter Loop Ascher
SD 211 pep-0211.txt Adding New Linear Algebra Operators Wilson
SD 212 pep-0212.txt Loop Counter Iteration Schneider-Kamp
SD 213 pep-0213.txt Attribute Access Handlers Prescod
SD 215 pep-0215.txt String Interpolation Yee
I 216 pep-0216.txt Docstring Format Zadka
SD 217 pep-0217.txt Display Hook for Interactive Use Zadka
SD 218 pep-0218.txt Adding a Built-In Set Object Type Wilson
SD 219 pep-0219.txt Stackless Python McMillan
I 220 pep-0220.txt Coroutines, Generators, Continuations McMillan
S 224 pep-0224.txt Attribute Docstrings Lemburg
I think we should find new authors for PEPs 207 and 208 and work on
them for 2.1. I imagine David would be happy to pass the torch on
I assume Gordon will be working on the stackless PEPs, but we should
For all of the other PEPs, authors who want to have them considered
for 2.1 should provide some updates to their PEPs.
We should also simplfy the PEP index so that deferred PEPs are
collected at the bottom or something like that.
