I once posted the procedure to all current pydotorg project admins.
I hesitate to post the precise instructions to a public mailing list

Actually, you (tim.peters) have the necessary permissions.

Sure will do (in private mail). Maybe I'm just paranoid - if you
think the procedure should be published, I wouldn't object.
