Research areas

TODO: Bernard will follow up with Paul and others on this

UX training for packaging maintainers?

What are you blocked on?

Bernard: what part of pip functionality to start the research on

Paul's ok - I have been getting up to speed on resolvelib's API and architecture, had an overview of pip's resolver code with Pradyun, and I'm now starting to work on refactorings and paying off technical debt to prepare for the new resolver.

TP is ok - writing tests for resolver, integration into pip

Pradyun: sort of good - been looking at how to structure arch docs

Resolver roadmap

Wondering if it’d be particularly useful if I write up how the resolver works right now, and what public structures it should provide (I want to keep the public surface as small as possible so it’s easier to change the internals if needed)

Sequence between now and release:

Have we chosen Resolvlib?

least bad choice. Least blockers to overcome

resolvlib API is most straightforward. Can plug something in later if we change our mind

Paul put it well in tech decision thread in GitHub. We're choosing RL's _API_.

To Do (followup)
