This is the feedback thread for the Final Review of DIP 1038,
**THIS IS NOT A DISCUSSION THREAD**
Posts in this thread must adhere to the feedback thread rules
outlined in the Reviewer Guidelines (and listed at the bottom of
That document also provides guidelines on contributing feedback
to a DIP review. Please read it before posting here. If you would
like to discuss this DIP, please do so in the discussion thread:
You can find DIP 1038 here:
The review period will end at 11:59 PM ET on February 17, or when
I make a post declaring it complete. Feedback posted to this
thread after that point may be ignored.
At the end of the Final Review, the DIP will be forwarded to the
language maintainers for Formal Assessment.
Posts in this thread that do not adhere to the following rules
will be deleted at the DIP manager's discretion:
* All posts must be a direct reply to the DIP manager's initial
post, with only two exceptions:
- Any commenter may reply to their own posts to retract
feedback contained in the original post
- The DIP author may (and is encouraged to) reply to any
feedback solely to acknowledge the feedback with agreement or
disagreement (preferably with supporting reasons in the latter
* Feedback must be actionable, i.e., there must be some action
the DIP author can choose to take in response to the feedback,
such as changing details, adding new information, or even
retracting the proposal.
* Feedback related to the merits of the proposal rather than to
the contents of the DIP (e.g., "I'm against this DIP.") is
allowed in Community Review, but not in Final Review, and must be
backed by supporting arguments (e.g., "I'm against this DIP
because..."). The supporting arguments must be reasonable.
Obviously frivolous arguments waste everyone's time.
* Feedback should be clear and concise, preferably listed as
bullet points (those who take the time to do an in-depth review
and provide feedback in the form of answers to the questions in
the reviewer guidelines will receive much gratitude). Information
that is irrelevant to the DIP or is not provided in service of
clarifying the feedback is unwelcome.
