For metadata 2.0, I'll be getting new versions up as part of the sprints,
but after the stdlib PEPs for the SSL and ensurepip feature backport

The main near term need there is to get PEP 440 accepted so we can finalise
the pip and setuptools syntax for environment marker based version specific

The content of PEP 440 should be final at this point, but it's missing an
updated reference regex for the version parsing and a rerun of the
compatibility checks against an up to date PyPI dump. It would be great if
someone else could handle that task while I'm looking at the 2.7
enhancement PEPs.
