AFAIU, there is not yet a documented process for BDFL-delegate assignment.

There's this in the devguide; which links to PEP1:

"20.2. PEP Process¶"

And PEP 1:

"PEP 1 -- PEP Purpose and Guidelines"
  "PEP Workflow"
  "PEP Editors"
  "PEP Editor Responsibilities & Workflow"


And the devguide has a list of experts:

Maybe PEP1 is the place to list current BDFL-Delegates
(in addition to in the PEP metadata as in the OT PR:
"PEP 580: Petr Viktorin as BDFL-Delegate"

Not to bikeshed, but is BDFL-Delegate still the current term because that's
what's in all the other PEPs' metadata?
