Get a Python Package Version
Part of maintaining a Django-based application like MDN's kuma is ensuring Python packages are up to date. I was recently testing an upgrade on a remote system and needed to ensure that a given Python package was at the version number it should be. Here's how I retrieved the package version:

__version__ property returns the exact version number for a Python package. Some Python packages use a
VERSION property as well, but
__version__ should be the most reliable.
