Is there a way we can keep python-committers (mailman) and the corresponding channel here in sync? For example, that could be some sort of bot.
That would allow us to transition more smoothly, be less disruptive to the governance discussions, and allow us to cancel the experiment (if it came to that) more easily. It would also keep the list archives up-to-date. That would ease my concerns with the abrupt change and I expect it would help address the strong concerns expressed by others.
