[$] Python gets a new governance model

Post Syndicated from jake original https://lwn.net/Articles/775105/rss

Back in late October, when we looked in on
the Python
governance question, which came about due to the resignation of Guido van Rossum, things seemed
to be mostly set for a vote in late November. There were six Python
Enhancement Proposals (PEPs) under consideration that would be ranked by
voters in a two-week period ending December 1; instant-runoff
would be used to determine the winner. In the interim, though,
much of that changed; the voting period, winner-determination mechanism,
and number of PEPs under consideration are all different. But the voting
concluded on December 16 and a winner
has been declared
; PEP 8016 (“The
Steering Council Model”), which was added to the mix in early November, came
out on top.
