I've now updated PEP 474 to cover my current proposal for the support
repositories, as well as some of the preparatory work that is already
being undertaken: https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0474/

By the end of the month, I'll also aim to have an updated version of
PEP 462 published that considers how the forge.python.org service
could potentially be extended to handle CPython itself, rather than
attempting to build those flows directly into the existing Roundup and
Rietveld based approach.
