Reading PEP 12, https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0012/#id24


   Leave Post-History alone for now; you'll add dates to this header each
   time you post your PEP to python-list at python.org or python-dev at python.org.
   If you posted your PEP to the lists on August 14, 2001 and September 3,
   2001, the Post-History header would look like:

   Post-History: 14-Aug-2001, 03-Sept-2001

   You must manually add new dates and check them in. If you don't have
   check-in privileges, send your changes to the PEP editors.

Perhaps it is outdated and needs to have python-ideas added? python-ideas
was created around 2006 (according to the archives), so after PEP 1/12 were

> This PEP adds a new item to the
> ``*.distinfo/METADATA`` file


Thank you for catching that. I will fix that with my next round of edits.
