Package ecosystem & DSF

Possibility of a packages working group, based on current maintenance concerns in the Django ecosystem:

Recognizing the importance of DRF to the Django community, and of packages generally – the maintenance work of adopting more packages would stretch DSF resources. Discussion to be had with DSF Fellows & Steering Council.

Django’s official packages process: DEP 7 (covered projects: channels). The DEP does not define whether Fellows work on package maintenance / who does – it defines projects come with a maintenance team. It would be worth comparing with how the PSF does this.
