Decisions on what fundraising and projects/efforts to support will be done by a
simple majority and in the case of a tie, will escalate to the PSF Board.
Voting will be done through some mechanism which is transparent to all voting
members of the workgroup (Mailing List, Slack, etc). The preferred venue for
votes will be the mailing list.
Decisions on what fundraising and projects/efforts to support will be done
using the voting procedures outlined below. Anyone may propose or request
funding for a specific project/effort to be considered by the WG by emailing
their proposal to packaging-wg@python.org. It is recommended, but not required,
for anyone with a proposal to find a champion among the voting members prior
to submitting their proposal.

In general, projects/efforts funded should follow these guidelines:

 * Improve or maintain the state of Python's packaging effort by some
   noticeable or measurable amount.
 * Have at least rough consensus/agreement from the owners of whatever project
   is being touched (e.g. don't spend money on something a project doesn't
   want) or general agreement from distutils-sig for cross project efforts
   (ideally in the form of an accepted PEP).
 * The project in question being under the PyPA banner is recommended, but not
   required for funding.

Communication Plan

The working group will communicate via mailing list (packaging-wg@python.org) and via Slack (the-psf.slack.com#packaging-wg). If needed, conference calls or additional communication channels can be set up.

Budget

The working group budget will be whatever funds that the working group has raised for itself. If needed, the working group may ask the board of directors for additional funding. The working group will display the funds gathered on our main wiki page: https://wiki.python.org/psf/PackagingWG. We will also list the funds that are spent.
