Guido van Rossum resigns as Python leader

Post Syndicated from corbet original

Python creator and Benevolent Leader for Life Guido van Rossum has decided,
in the wake of the difficult PEP 572
, to step down from his
leadership of the project. “Now that PEP 572 is done, I don’t ever want to have to fight so hard for a
PEP and find that so many people despise my decisions.

I would like to remove myself entirely from the decision process. I’ll
still be there for a while as an ordinary core dev, and I’ll still be
available to mentor people — possibly more available. But I’m basically
giving myself a permanent vacation from being BDFL, and you all will be on
your own.”
