Well, I may be dumb, but ideas seems like non structured draft of PEP.
(like IETF RFC drafts), and by looking at PEP 1, I read that it
describes a very workflow on how to do things.

Maybe python-ideas should only accept ideas in the form a link to a
PEP draft and people would have to maintain there draft as long as it
is not accepted.


So why duplicates already existing procedure and infrastructure ?
Maybe amending PEP 1 could be a good way to achieve the aformentioned

By not adding a PEP draft that is not accepted in a documentation
database, we achieve one of the very first goal of a documentation
database which is lowering the Noise Signal Ratio.

My .02 cents,
