Pronounciation[edit]

Is PyPI pronounced like "Py Pee Eye" or like "pypy"? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 93.223.73.151 (talk) 22:05, 17 December 2013 (UTC)

Yes, mainly "Py Pee Eye", but really anything except "pypy", to distinguish it from the project of that name (PyPy). I can't find an authoritative citation, but a search for "PyPI pronounced" gives a fair amount of consensus among core devs, e.g.:

Monty Python?[edit]

Today's DYK states that the moniker "Cheese Shop" is a reference to the Monty Python's sketch with this title. However, despite careful reading, I could not find any mention of Monty Python in this article, so I'd like to know what's the story behind it and how could such a hook be passed. At the very least, the article should answer the question why/how the moniker came about, not merely state that it exists. — Yerpo Eh? 13:08, 17 August 2016 (UTC)

Indeed, this seems to be a violation of usual Wikipedia policy? The "hook" for this DYK isn't to be found anywhere in the article.Dave (talk) 14:55, 17 August 2016 (UTC)
Hmm. At least there was one apparent opportunity to improve the article, then. Σσς(Sigma) 05:00, 23 August 2016 (UTC)

Update of content?[edit]

This page seems to be out of date. "Eggs" are replaced with "wheels" today. But as far i know, eggs never contained the setup.py - it is only in source distribution packages (which are not eggs!). Eggs (and know wheels) exist for exactly the purpose to not use setup.py. 2003:DF:3BCB:7600:6927:41E6:BD5C:E455 (talk) 21:49, 15 October 2017 (UTC)
