The reason I’m asking this is @vstinner at one point listed both @tiran and @Senthil in PEP 8100 because they both wanted to nominate him. In PEP 8100 that made it look like Victor had extra support compared to everyone else. I figured we should probably discuss whether my gut feeling on this is wrong or whether we want to standardize this for the PEP somehow.
Now I don’t want to discourage Victor or anyone else from listing people who support their nomination, but I also don’t know if we want to have nominees trying to collect nominators to make their entry in PEP 8100 look better compared to others (and I’m not accusing Victor of trying to do this, BTW; his entry just made me think of this scenario).
So what do people think?
- List as many nominators as one wants
- Core devs can list a specific nominator
- Core devs list
self, externals list a core dev nominator
- Only list a nominator in the case of an external nominee
