The section of the reference on the gc module goes into some detail on what the thresholds control and when collections are run, but does not currently document the backoff algorithm used when deciding whether or not to collect generation 2.  This should presumably be documented.

Presumably the responsibility for this lies with the person who made the changes for #4074 ?

No. There is no "responsibility" to do anything in an open source project.
