Is there a thread or request form for packages to be added to the Python in Excel environment?

Pretty much as the title says.

Is there some way we can request additional packages? Does this need to go through Microsoft or through Anaconda?

I would love to see data assets for nltk included.

But also simpler things like pycountry.

Yes! We have the packages topic where you can request new packages. I’ll start a pinned thread there for the future. In the meantime, I can add pycountry to the list of requested packages.
For NLTK, I can say that we’re working with Microsoft on a solution. Since the container that runs Python has no network access, all resources need to be preinstalled which has impact on spin-up time. When we get that figured out, we’ll let you know.
