The Maintainers Summit will take place on the morning of Saturday, May 4th, the first day of PyCon proper. A part of PyCon’s hatchery program, the Summit is seeking to build a community of practice for project maintainers and key contributors. We seek to help the Python community sustain and grow healthy projects and communities.
Activities will include talks and mini unconference around technology, community, resourcing, and more as it relates to package maintenance.
The call for proposals for lightning talks https://www.papercall.io/pycon-maintainers-summit is open till March 15th. But even if you don't want to propose a talk, I suggest you keep the Summit on your radar -- one of the topic suggestions is:
What tools and techniques have helped you maintain your Python project, and what challenges have yet to be addressed? Potential topics: CI/CD tooling, package layout, setuptools, PyPI, licenses compatibility, process and release tooling
And then we could take some of those topics into the sprints.
