Correct, which is why "PEP 0462 -- Core development workflow automation 
for CPython" https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0462/, "PEP 0474 -- 
Creating forge.python.org" https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0474/ and 
a separate core-workflow mailing list exist.

Admittedly things had stalled but I understand that they're being picked 
up again.
