However we haven’t historically mandated this and there are a lot of projects using date based versions that would b very unhappy (in addition to the fact upper pins often are major contributors to being unable to resolve a version tree of dependencies).
Just want to raise my hand to be counted here among the people that would be extremely unhappy if PyPI started mandating semver.
