I propose:

    1. Do most/all of the serious discussion on python-dev.

    2. When http://www.python.org/peps/ changes, post a simple announcement
       just to c.l.py.announce that such-and-such a PEP was updated or is

If people are that interested in tracking PEPs, there is the above URL after
all.  They can register with one of those URL notifier services if they are
that intent.  Since python.org doesn't host ads, there should be no problem
with spurious notifications.

I sure a little watcher script for #2 wouldn't be hard to write.
