Agenda

The purpose of this working group is to support the larger efforts of improving and maintaining the packaging ecosystem in Python through fundraising and disbursement of raised funds. It will largely focus on efforts such as PyPI, pip, packaging.python.org, setuptools, and cross project efforts.

Resources

  • Discussion: Slack and mailing list. The archives are set to private since there will be voting.
  • Accounting: We rely on the PSF's donation and accounting mechanisms to raise funds and disburse them to the selected recipients.

Current Projects

Fundraising

The Packaging Working Group is seeking sponsorships and grants to raise funds.

Sprints

We plan to run several PackagingSprints in 2018, including sprints at PyCon North America and EuroPython.
