Launch 🚀

Today, we flipped the proverbial switch, and https://pypi.org became the Python Package Index.

Two years ago, when I made my very first contribution to pypa/warehouse, I never dreamed that it would one day be my job to work full-time on the project.

However, as luck would have it, that’s exactly what I’ve been doing for the last five months!

It has been both a blast and an honor to be a part of the team who made this project a success. These folks are extremely talented, and I’d like to thank them for all their hard work:

And of course, thanks to Mozilla for supporting the Python ecosystem by providing the funds to make this possible via a MOSS award. (If your project is looking for financial support, see https://mozilla.org/moss to see if you qualify.)

Stay tuned
