The new Python Package Index at https://pypi.org is now in beta.
This means the site is robust, but we anticipate needing more user
testing and changes before it is "production-ready" and can fully
replace https://pypi.python.org . We hope to complete the transition
before the end of April 2018.
We're still working to ensure the new codebase and infrastructure are
reliable. So please don't rely on it (yet) unless you can handle the
occasional minor outage.
But we want you to try the new PyPI, test it, and tell us if you have
any problems. We have IRC and Twitter livechats coming up between March
27th and April 5th to get feedback from you:
* Tuesday, March 27th, 16:00-17:00 UTC
* Friday, March 30th, 14:00-15:00 UTC
* Tuesday, April 3rd, 15:00-16:00 UTC
* Friday, April 5th, 0:00-1:00 UTC

As you may know, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival is starting one week
after EuroPython 2018 in Edinburgh. Since this typically attracts many
thousands of people and artists, the hotels are filling up quickly in

EuroPython attendees. These rooms will be held reserved until a few

website, opening ticket sales and the Call for Proposals (CFP).
