Ned is right that I was on holiday for the past week and am slowly digging
myself out from underneath my pile of email.

Ned is also right that I view the Misc/NEWS issue the most important thing
to solve next for our workflow as we have been putting up with merge
conflicts on this file for long enough.

Since this is going to be a somewhat protracted discussion as there are
multiple tools consider (including writing our own), I think we should keep
the discussion at https://github.com/python/core-workflow/issues/6.
