I agree with Amber’s point that more stuff should be moved from the standard library to PyPI. I made my first pull request to CPython during the development sprints this year, and it’s honestly not the best experience. Everything is built from scratch in CI after every commit, even a documentation change. There’s nowhere near enough CI builds and pipelines for everything Python supports. Pull requests are outstanding for several months, and there’s at least a thousand PRs open when I checked this morning.

I’m not sure if Python’s ideal solution is to reduce stdlib and have endorsed packages in PyPI, but it would be an improvement over the current process.
