Contribute time, not money.  Money does not make interested developers
materialize, and money doesn't help figure out what to do.  The great
problem is that no one is particularly interested in improving Python's
packaging, not even to the extent of offering opinions on concrete proposals
or trying out code.

(Things that might help: join the Catalog-SIG and try a system that someone
else has built.  Comment on existing proposals like PEPs 262 and 314. 
Review the existing code and offer patches.)
