That certainly won't happen. python-dev, as a community, has never ever
taken ownership of anything. It's always individuals who take ownership.

So you essentially say that you want somebody else (but not you) take
ownership - which, of course, is certainly fine. Hence my call for

My prediction is that it will depend on whether workable code is
available by the time a decision is made to migrate. If code is
available, then migration will happen (no matter whether the code
has an owner); if no code is available, migration will stall.
