Poking here since everyone who might care is likely using Discourse in some form.
I’m trying to figure out how and when pip can move to using importlib.metadata in place of pkg_resources, since I understand that it’s a more modern replacement for entry points and pkg_resources.Distribution.
- Is there any work to be done, to make it feature complete, especially on the PyPI backport side? (I see that the current release on PyPI, has an “Alpha” classifier)
- Is there possibly a “one-to-one mapping + caveats” mapping between the interfaces of the two libraries?
