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.
- 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.
The Packaging Working Group is seeking sponsorships and grants to raise funds.
We plan to run several PackagingSprints in 2018, including sprints at PyCon North America and EuroPython.

The Packaging Working Group supported the implementation & deployment of Warehouse (PyPI 2.0) to replace the legacy code base that powered legacy PyPI. Announced on PSF blog in January 2016; see its history in this April 2018 LWN article.
- Summary: PSF blog post about the MOSS grant.
- Roadmap: WarehouseRoadmap. As of 30 April 2018, the Warehouse team has shut down the legacy PyPI installation, and -- on a volunteer basis -- is working on Milestone 6, "Post Legacy Shutdown".
- Code: GitHub repo.
- Deployment: pypi.org.
- Testing: See the PSF blog post about testing for the beta. (Previously: WarehousePackageMaintainerTesting, PSF blog post about testing package maintainer functionality.)
