Python Packaging AuthorityΒΆ

The Python Packaging Authority (PyPA) is a working group that maintains many of the relevant projects in Python packaging.

The software developed through the PyPA is used to package, share, and install Python software and to interact with indexes of downloadable Python software such as PyPI, the Python Package Index. Click the logo below to download pip, the most prominent software used to interact with PyPI.

They host projects on GitHub and Bitbucket, and discuss issues in the Packaging category on and on the pypa-dev and distutils-sig mailing lists.

For a listing of their most important projects, see the key projects list.
