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,, setuptools, and cross project efforts.


  • 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


The Packaging Working Group supports the implementation & deployment of Warehouse (PyPI 2.0) to replace the legacy code base that powers PyPI.
