Hello there! I'm having my second year's last exam tomorrow, but it feels like summer already! I've been finalizing quite a few things to get them ready for pip 20.2b2.
What did I do last week?
I've spent most of the time on getting the opt-in of obtaining dependency information via lazy wheels ready. It will be available as
--use-feature=fast-deps and only has effect when
--use-feature=2020-resolver also presents.
While waiting for reviews and suggestions, I made some patches for internal cleansing, namely GH-8568, GH-8571 and GH-8578. Some of the similar patches I made earlier were also merged last week: GH-8456 and GH-8538.
Did I get stuck anywhere?
Not really, everything was going as expected for me.
What is coming up next?
After GH-8532, I'll work on the parallel download of the postponed wheels. My main current concern is with how the download progress will be reported to the users, but I think I'll figure it out soon.
