Fourth Check-In

Hello there! I'm having my second year's last exam tomorrow, but it feels like summer already! I've been finalizing quite a few things to get them ready for pip 20.2b2.

What did I do last week?

I've spent most of the time on getting the opt-in for obtaining dependency information via lazy wheels ready. It will be available as --use-feature=fast-deps and only has effect when --use-feature=2020-resolver also presents.

While waiting for reviews and suggestions, I made some patches for internal cleansing, namely GH-8568, GH-8571 and GH-8578. Some of the similar patches I made earlier were also merged last week: GH-8456 and GH-8538.

Did I get stuck anywhere?

Not really, everything was going as expected for me.

What is coming up next?

After GH-8532, I'll work on the parallel download of the postponed wheels. My main current concern is with how the download progress will be reported to the users, but I think I'll figure it out soon.
