sounds good, i'll write that down in the proposal as well

last points I can think of, that we have discussed at the sprint:

- are non open source licensed packages alllowed at PyPI ?

- wouldn't it make sense for open source package to force a sdist
upload before any other kind of distribution
  (this is a feature claimed by many people in fact, as binary
distribution obsfuscate things and make
    it hard to install if it's not the same version, and if it was not
intended by the packager)
