I’d like to move the
installer project under the PyPA umbrella.
While it’s not had a 1.0.0 release yet and there’s still some open feature requests, it is (as far as I’m aware) the only library in the position that it has – a self-contained, minimal wheel installation library.
Many folks (including myself) have been recommending it as the piece in the puzzle for a better bootstrapping story for downstream redistributors. It (combined with flit_core’s bootstrapping and build) will help redistributors move them away from using pip for bootstrapping, simplifying the dependency tree that they need to deal with when bootstrapping.
A PyPA committer vote is triggered when a PyPA committer (not the proposer) seconds the proposal.
Any other PyPA committer willing to second my proposal to move installer?
