There is no official list of Python packages to upload all of.

There are 10000 packages on Pypi, and perhaps an equal number elsewhere.

Many are just names or junk that you would never use and do not want on
your machine. Many are specialized add-ons to another package. It
seems that Python is different from R.
pip can load a list of packages. This is used daily to build machines
with Python + a specified list. It would be an interesting project for
someone to make, publish, and update a 'sumo' list of the most useful
packages that can all be loaded together.
