[python-committers] Transfer of power
Quote:
Now that PEP 572 is done, I don't ever want to have to fight so hard for a
PEP and find that so many people despise my decisions.

I would like to remove myself entirely from the decision process. I'll
still be there for a while as an ordinary core dev, and I'll still be
available to mentor people -- possibly more available. But I'm basically
giving myself a permanent vacation from being BDFL, and you all will be on
your own.
Continues in TFA.

What was so hard about the original author getting a PEP passed?

I don't know the details, but from what little I've read, it sounds like there were disagreements and differing approaches to style of communication, and their accumulating effect over time. And that PEP was his final "sign" indicating it was time.
