Add support for yanked files from a repository (PEP 592) #6633
What's the problem this feature will solve?
Describe the solution you'd like
Support for PEP 592 -- Adding "Yank" Support to the Simple API will affect which packages get chosen. This will therefore affect the pip resolver, but does not have to wait for the new resolver rewrite (#988 @pradyunsg).
@dstufft is currently working on the PyPI side in pypa/warehouse#5838 . There's an opportunity for someone to help by working on pip support; not sure whether Donald's working on it and/or whether this feature is blocked on the Warehouse API getting into better shape.
I think it might be better to title this "Support yank ..." or "Add support for yanking ...." Currently, it reads like it's to stop supporting pip in some setting (at least that's how I read it, and didn't know it was about the "yank" feature until clicking through).
