[python-uk] Benevolent Dictator On Permanent Vacation

Thank you, Peter, for bringing this to our attention. I've spent about 10
minutes reading through the thread started by Guido's announcement, and
also his plea for patience regarding PEP 572.

I think one of the best ways to thank someone is to continue their work.
Guido has spent much time and energy taking good care of Python, and we can
thank him by taking good care of it ourselves. That way Python will last a
long time.

In his message, Guido passes the question of succession to the core
developers. Those of us who are not core developers might like, at PyconUK,
to think about how we can help support the process.

Over the next few days I'll look over the python-committers thread again.

with best wishes
