Anatoly has just raised a series of issues against pip, all essentially reiterating the same point that he doesn't like pip's new handling of prerelease vs release versions (which was thrashed out and agreed in a PEP) I assume he's trying to get support for some vague meta-point here in the hope that by doing so he'll feel justified in arguing further on the pip issues :-(
