I'm calling for a vote to create a logo for Python Packaging Authority (and
Detailed discussion and information might be found at
here's a quick outline.
Currently, the logo as shown on Python Packaging Authority is just the PSF
> Python logo and the word pypa written beside it (see
> https://github.com/pypa). We could create something more unique that

> Create a more rustic icon for Cargo:
> My idea would be to have a Python snake encircling a box and leave the
> content of the box to be a stylized capital P. The P here would represent

> e.g. the build tool could put a gear icon into it.
Relevant to the discussion is also The Packaging Platypus -

Dustin Ingram said that the PyPA does home some funds via Tidelift and PSF
to allocate for creating this. The vote is to see if we all agree that this
is something we should do. The logistics of choosing the design and
contractor will be done separately if this vote goes through.
The proposal: Adopt https://pypi.org/p/installer into the PyPA.
Functionally, this means transferring https://github.com/pradyunsg/installer to the `pypa` organisation on GitHub. The proposal was first put forward at https://discuss.python.org/t/13778. If there's any discussions or comments, please direct them there.
Relevant section from PEP 609:
> The proposal will be put to a vote on the PyPA-Committers mailing list, over a 7-day period. Each PyPA committer can vote once, and can choose one of +1 and -1. If at least two thirds of recorded votes are +1, then the vote succeeds.
