Tooting from the Open Source Bridge session on Python Packaging, led by @brainwane
For overview and tutorials on current standards, see https://packaging.python.org/
Recommends Dustin Ingram's recent talk "Inside the Cheeseshop" for a history of Python's package repository over the years: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AQsZsgJ30AE
PyPI is the Python Packaging Index, pronounced like "pie pee eye."
For distributing *applications*, rather than libraries, there's probably a post from dsufft about it on https://caremad.io

Other important side note:
Read 17776 for stories about sentient spacecraft: https://www.sbnation.com/a/17776-football
