Fedora loves Python: the distro and the language ecosystem

Have you seen a "Fedora loves Python" sticker and wondered what that's all about? What does it mean for a distro to "love" a programming language?

At the Fedora's Python SIG and at Red Hat's python-maint, we try to make Fedora the best OS for Python developers: to do what a distro needs to do and get out of your way.

We integrate the Python interpreter and major libraries into a cohesive whole. The goal is not to have a Python with Fedora-specific bells and whistles, but to solve problems in Python itself.
We make libraries like NumPy, Requests or Sphinx available to Fedora users, but also test to make sure they work with each other, and with new Python versions, even outside Fedora.

Come hear about the value of distro packages in a world of containers and virtual environments, about what we're doing now and what are the plans for the future -- and how you could get involved, if it makes sense to you.
