This is a potential follow-up to issue 31898, whereby the recommended packages list could be taken into account as part of CPython's own testing regime. The gist of the idea would be to:

1. Update the recommended-packages list to nominate particular *versions* of those dependencies (the latest available version as of each CPython maintenance release)
2. Add a new "-uthird-party" resource definition to the regression test suite
3. Add a new regression test that installed the recommended packages into a virtual environment and ran their tests when that resource was enabled


It's a separate issue, since this would be more work to maintain than the simple "we recommend these packages" list proposed in issue 31898.

Removing the issue assignment, as I'm not actively working on this (although I still think it's a reasonable idea).
