PEP 1, and https://devguide.python.org/langchanges/#

But most changes don't need a PEP.  We're only discussing this now
because Anders's proposal would need a PEP.

In general, though, PEPs are rare.  There are many hundreds of pull
requests accepted every year, but there only about 500 PEPs (including
rejected, withdrawn, and deferred PEPs) over the entire history of
Python.  Of those, quite a few are Process and Informational PEPs.

The Language Changes section is #20, and doesn't get a quick link from
the table of links in the "Contributing" section of the home page of
the DevGuide.  That's as it should be, IMO, so I'm not going to write
up a PR to add such a link.  YMMV, go right ahead.
