The key thing to realize about this process is the need for convergence on a single standard. By analogy with how gofmt helped unify Go code, and hence the community, we need a single way forward for dependency management.
I've been saddened by some of the fractious conversation on the topic lately, and while it's always difficult to make big changes, it's also always possible to do them better with the application of hindsight.
So as things go forward, keep in mind that the community-oriented aspects of dependency management are arguably as important as the technical ones. It will take work on both fronts to succeed.
The future is bright.
