Hi Chris

I'm also left wondering ..

Fully agreed .. PyPI sometimes becomes a maze of twisty packages, all alike.

Without metadata to show that there are these alternatives, and what
their status is, PyPI becomes write-only. You can't browse it and get
good information. Instead, you have to learn about the right package
to use from a mailing list or elsewhere.

Sometimes setuptools compounds the issue by finding dev releases, or
old releases, or needlessly upgrading a package and thereby breaking
something you already have.

When I still used Gentoo a few years ago, portage seemed like it was
doing a pretty good job of managing this kind of issue. However the
rules about getting something into portage were more strict.
