For the last 6 months my work revolved around topics related to Python packaging, PEP-427, build systems and the like. Soon I’ll have to share the knowledge to other members of my team.
It just dawned on me, that I have no idea where the name for the packaging format - “Wheel” - comes from and what it’s supposed to mean. Is it a noun? A verb? I won’t be able to sleep peacefully until I get to know the answer .
Anyone able to shed some light on this?
