Great post Raphael! This was really helpful, did you ever discover a way to publish different versions of the package? So some apps can keep downloading older versions if you make big changes

Sorry for the giant delay! The pip package has this for default. You will just need to something like: pip install myawesomepackage==1.0.1 where the version should be the exact version that you need, even if is old.

But are you aware of combining the approach that you describe (using git URL) with setting a fixed version? I would hope that it works using git tags. Would be nice if anybody has tried this can report here :)
