FLINK-12962 adds the ability to build a PyFlink distribution package, but we have not yet released PyFlink to PyPI. The goal of JIRA is to publish the PyFlinjk distribution package built by FLINK-12962 to PyPI.
The changes list:
1. Create PyPI Project for Apache Flink Python API, named: "apache-flink"
2. Release one binary with the default Scala version same with flink default config.
3. Create an account, named "pyflink" as owner(only PMC can manage it). PMC can add account for the Release Manager, but Release Manager can not delete the release.
