Nicole is handling that but I believe she is planning to start that the beginning of December. If you’re interested in participating with that contacting Nicole to see if she needs any more volunteers for it would be a good idea.

Ah oops, here’s the Call to Action issue we had https://github.com/pypa/warehouse/issues/717.

I want to stress that the design is not “finished”, it’s very much a WIP still. Consider this sort of like an alpha or something.
