Yet, defining a set of packages that are recommended, and perhaps working together, is still far from defining an exact set of packages that are known to work together, something which I proposed here.

We could theoretically bake this into PyPI itself, though I’m not sure if that makes sense.

We could also probably bake something like “curated package sets” into PyPI where individual users (or groups of users) can create their own view of PyPI for people to use, while still relying on all of the infrastructure of PyPI. Although I’m not sure that makes any sense either.
