PEP 711 - Distributing Python Binaries

Episode #412, published Wed, Apr 19, 2023, recorded Tue, Apr 18, 2023

What if we distributed CPython, the runtime, in the same way we distributed Python packages - as prebuilt binary wheels that only need to be downloaded and unzipped to run? For starters, that would mean we could ship and deploy Python apps without worrying whether Python itself is available or up-to-date on the platform. Nathaniel Smith has just proposed a PEP to do just that, PEP 711. And we'll dive into that with him next.
