I read the RoadMap (Thank you Marcus Smith) and came across this:

> An effort to integrate PyPI with the “The Update Framework” (TUF). This is specified in PEP458

I see a trend to immutable systems everywhere. Updates are a pain. Building
new systems is easier. With current hardware and good software it is easier
to build new systems instead of updating existing systems.

It is like from pets to cattle:

 - pets: you give them names and care for them (do updates)
 - cattle: you give them numbers and if they get ill you get rid of them.

Maybe I am missing something. But why is there an
effort to create "The Update Framework”, and why integrate
it with pypi?
