The first round of Community Review for DIP 1040, "Copying, Moving, and Forwarding", is now underway. Please discuss the DIP (its merits, its implementation, peripheral topics, etc.) in the Discussion Thread and save all review feedback (critiques on the content of the DIP: what to change, how to improve it, etc.) for the Feedback Thread.

Please note that this proposal was written and submitted as a draft PR by Walter *prior* to the decision last year that the language maintainers must find someone else to author their DIP ideas. He had two DIPs in Draft Review at the time, and we agreed in a Foundation meeting that they both should be subject to the new rule. So they have been sitting in the queue waiting for someone to take them on.

Max Haughton was the first to express an interest in doing so. This DIP is now entirely his responsibility. He will decide if and how to revise it in response to feedback in the review process. He declined to make any changes to the DIP prior to launching this review round.

The other DIP by Walter in need of a champion is a fairly simple one, "Evaluate Pure Functions with CTFE". Anyone interested in taking control of it, please email me at and we'll discuss it. You can find it at:
