Basically: Historical reasons. The name “PyPA” was a joke by the pip/virtualenv developers and it was only pip and virtualenv so it was on Github.
here's an anecdote.... per the pypa.io history page, 'Other proposed names were “ianb-ng”, “cabal”, “pack” and “Ministry of Installation”'

Oh man, too bad “Ministry of Installation” was not chosen, my favorite!
