Here's your weekly update on Warehouse, powering the new PyPI.[0]

You can see some noticeable improvements to Warehouse right now compared
to last week. There's a mobile UI for managing projects[1], and a
project owner can now delete a project.[2] We also have several CSS
tweaks and other continuing design improvements -- we're lucky to be
working with Nicole on this.[3] Less visibly, we have further Kubernetes
security work by Ernest in cabotage[4] and Dustin's work on a generic
token service[5].

We're still on track to hit the Maintainer MVP milestone at the end of
this month.[6] On the documentation and outreach side, Laura and I have
been preparing to contact very active maintainers when we hit that
milestone, and we've been improving the packaging user guide,[7] and
working a bit on Twine (e.g., documentation for using python-keyring
with Twine to avoid having to use a .pypirc).[8]

Thanks to Jon Wayne Parrott for fixing an issue Dustin spotted[9] so
that pypa.io gets fresh updates again.[10]

In PEP progress, PEP 541 is moving forward again, with a pull request
for a change in BDFL-Delegate.[11]

As usual, meeting notes from our weekly discussion are on the wiki.[12]

And if you want to get started contributing to Warehouse, Ernest wants
to help you and give you stickers, and has 30-minute 1:1 slots
available.[13] Right now we have eleven open issues marked as good for

Thanks to Mozilla for their support for the PyPI & Warehouse work, and
thanks to the PSF for facilitating and supporting this work![15][16]
