Second Check-In

Published: 06/15/2020

Hi everyone and may the odds ever in your favor, especially during this tough time!

What did I do last week?

Not as much I wished, apparently (-:

Did I get stuck anywhere?

Yes, of course! parallel maps are still stalling as well as other small PRs listed above. The failure related to logging are still making me pulling my hair out and the proof of concept for partial wheel downloading is too ugly even for a PoC. I imagine that I will have a lot of clean up to do this week (yay!).

What is coming up next?

I'm trying get the multi-{threading,processing} facilities merged ASAP to start rolling it out in practice. The first thing popping out of my head is to get back the multi-threaded pip list -o.

The other experimental improvement (this phrase does not sound right!) I would like to get done is the partial wheel download. It would be really nice if I can get both of these included as unstable-features in the upcoming beta release of pip 20.2.
