Summary: Library to access the metadata for a Python package
importlib_metadata is a library which provides an API for accessing an installed package's
metadata, such as its entry points or its top-level name. This functionality
intends to replace most uses of pkg_resources entry point API and metadata API.
Along with importlib.resources in Python 3.7 and newer (backported as
importlib_resources for older versions of Python), this can eliminate the need
to use the older and less efficient pkg_resources package.

importlib_metadata is a backport of Python 3.8's standard library importlib.metadata module
for Python 2.7, and 3.4 through 3.7. Users of Python 3.8 and beyond are
encouraged to use the standard library module, and in fact for these versions,
importlib_metadata just shadows that module. Developers looking for detailed
API descriptions should refer to the Python 3.8 standard library documentation.
