Note

This is just a placeholder until the actual governance PEPs are written. It is possible that the title, content, model proposed, and authorship will change once the PEP is actually written.

Abstract

This PEP proposes a continuation of the Benevolent Dictator For Life (BDFL) model of Python governance. While currently a placeholder, it will describe such processes as how the Guido+1 BDFL will be selected, how future successors will be chosen, the role of the BDFL, and the role and size of any advisory council.

This PEP does not name a new BDFL. Should this model be adopted, it will be codified in PEP 13 along with the names of all officeholders described in this PEP.
