AFAIU, there is not yet a documented process for BDFL-delegate assignment.

There's this in the devguide; which links to PEP1:

"20.2. PEP Process?"
https://devguide.python.org/langchanges/#pep-process
https://github.com/python/devguide/blob/master/langchanges.rst


And PEP 1:

"PEP 1 -- PEP Purpose and Guidelines"
  "PEP Workflow"
https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0001/#pep-workflow
  "PEP Editors"
https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0001/#pep-editors
  "PEP Editor Responsibilities & Workflow"
https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0001/#pep-editor-responsibilities-workflow

https://github.com/python/peps/blob/master/pep-0001.txt

And the devguide has a list of experts:
https://devguide.python.org/experts/


Maybe PEP1 is the place to list current BDFL-Delegates
(in addition to in the PEP metadata as in the OT PR:
python/peps#797
"PEP 580: Petr Viktorin as BDFL-Delegate"
)?


Not to bikeshed, but is BDFL-Delegate still the current term because that's
what's in all the other PEPs' metadata?
