From PEP 1:
There are three kinds of PEP:
* A Standards Track PEP describes a new feature or implementation
* An Informational PEP describes a Python design issue, or
provides general guidelines or information to the Python community,
but does not propose a new feature. Informational PEPs do not
necessarily represent a Python community consensus or recommendation,
so users and implementors are free to ignore Informational PEPs or
follow their advice.
* A Process PEP describes a process surrounding Python, or
proposes a change to (or an event in) a process. Process PEPs are
like Standards Track PEPs but apply to areas other than the Python
language itself. They may propose an implementation, but not to
Python's codebase; they often require community consensus; unlike
Informational PEPs, they are more than recommendations, and users are
typically not free to ignore them. Examples include procedures,
guidelines, changes to the decision-making process, and changes to
the tools or environment used in Python development. Any meta-PEP is
also considered a Process PEP.
I don't think it qualifies as a Standards PEP under the above
definitions. I made it Informational originally because it's rather
like the DB API PEPs, which are Informational.
I suppose we could say it's a Process PEP, or perhaps update PEP 1 to
add a new category (into which the DB API PEPs would also fall), or
maybe just tweak the above definitions a bit so that the
Informational category makes more sense.
