I’m aware PIP only wants be a backend to download packages but if we want to make pip like cargo (rust), what changes will be required??
You should have a read through Wanting a singular packaging tool/vision and related threads to appreciate how complicated that innocent-sounding question is.
Closing as this is so open ended that it will only invite the same sort of speculation and back and forth that has already been covered multiple times elsewhere. Please thoroughly review existing packaging discussions and understand the various points of view before starting yet another discussion.
I saw this discussion is a bit dead, so I’d like to resurrect it to see if there’s anything can be done to make PIP more like cargo?
