However, I just noticed that the PEP doesn't currently specify the effect of running "python -m getpip" when pip is already installed. I believe it should attempt to upgrade pip, so that in the normal course of events (i.e. just installing CPython maintenance releases without manually upgrading pip), then pip will be automatically upgraded to the latest version each time CPython itself is updated.
TBH I just assumed it would say that pip is already bootstrapped, but I'm
OK with making it upgrade as well. My thinking was if you already had
pip install --upgrade pip is easier but making the bootstrap
upgrade too does mean that installing a maintenance release will upgrade
your pip too which is kinda nice.
