I thought some folks from our community would be interested in the ongoing work on the Python Package Index (PyPI). The article mentioned in this post to the distutils mailing list provides a good history and a description of the new and planned features for "Warehouse".

Plus: screenshots! If you aren't already an LWN subscriber, you can use this subscriber link for the next week to read the article despite the LWN paywall. https://lwn.net/SubscriberLink/751458/81b2759e7025d6b9/ This summary should help occasional Python programmers -- and frequent Pythonists who don't follow packaging/distro discussions closely -- understand why a new application is necessary, what's new, what features are going away, and what to expect in the near future. I also hope it catches the attention of downstreams that ought to migrate. --- End forwarded message --- __________________________________________________________________________ OpenStack Development Mailing List (not for usage questions) Unsubscribe: openstack-dev-requ...@lists.openstack.org?subject:unsubscribe http://lists.openstack.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/openstack-dev
