The prospects for a diverse panel about Python packaging aren't any better - the project leaders we're considering inviting cover pretty much all the major projects, but are once again all guys (and I'm actually hoping enough of them won't be at PyCon that I can avoid having to cull the list of potential panelists myself)

(Given that many people consider having anything to do with attempting to improve Python packaging to be a soul destroying venture that is doomed to leave you feeling drained and disappointed, I certainly wouldn't be pointing newcomers to the community in that direction unless they indicated a prior interest. Even they were already interested, I'd at least warn them that the distributed nature of the problem and some of the complicated history makes it even more political in nature than most design and development activities).
