I didn't attend the meeting, but skimmed through the notes.

Thanks for this question!
Yes, that should be done for sure, I already set the placeholder on 
the documentation page for that.  I didn't want to impose any style guide
for a language I do not use as often.

The python style should have major input from python devs here in the team, I think.
So some questions for python people:

Which of the two mentioned guides above would you prefer as a base?
Which is more practical and up-to-date?

It would be most practical to just choose one and add a little here
and there, if necessary (as we did with java).

Kind regards,
