I noticed tzdata which is considered a part of the CPython project, a "first party package" but hosted on PyPI. Quoting #PEP615
> The term "first party" here is distinguished from "third party" in that, although it is is distributed via PyPI and is not currently included in Python by default, it is to be considered an official sub-project of CPython rather than a "blessed" third-party package.
I am divided on the #PEP594 thing. On one hand, yes it is cool to have a minimalistic Python deployed on new platforms: the web and the native mobile space.
However, I don't like that because it:
1. breaks backwards compatibility
2. adds another layer of dependency resolution
3. takes away the batteries included nature of Python, which is one of its defining characteristic.
@ashwinvis I think it is a good step. There are ancient packages that are not useful to most users. They are not talking about removing packages to solve real everyday problems.
