Thanks. Maybe that’s worth adding as a fundable packaging improvements? Especially since Shamika put out a call and a number of the other improvements seem like they moving forward (moving distutils into setuptools, adding PEP 621 support to setuptools revamping the PyPI repo and upload API including preview releases, TUF integration, and some other security things.
Yeah, sorry, my impression was at least most of that work was taken up by volunteers (I wish someone was paying me to do PEP 639 ) but I wasn’t sure about all of it, so I didn’t mention that part.
I was thinking something along the lines of the various corporate-funded projects that have been backlogged to get bigger file size caps or take care of other things, but I suppose its not the most compelling, heh—I just know how much load you all have been under. In any case, I’ll defer to your much better informed judgement.
