To provide an indicative timeline for this: I'm currently trying to
get PEP 538's locale coercion squared away for Python 3.7 before
Fedora 26 hits code freeze, and then will be busy with proposal
reviews for the PyCon Australia Education Seminar for the next couple
of weeks.

So that will mean I'll start figuring out the details of setting up
this rolling community SCL some time in late May or early June.
