Abstract

This PEP proposes a new model of Python governance based on consensus and voting by the Python community, without the role of a centralized singular leader or a governing council. It describes how, when, and why votes are conducted for decisions affecting the Python language. It also describes the criteria for voting eligibility.

Should this model be adopted, it will be codified in PEP 13 along with the names of all officeholders described in this PEP.
