> Hi there,
> I would like to point out that we have started the PyPI replication project
> some months ago during the Blackforest sprint:
> http://www.openplans.org/projects/pypi-mirroring/project-home
> As an outcome we are now able to provide in phase one of the project some
> mirrors of PyPI index. Currently we have three mirrors up and running and
> some more mirrors will join the project soon. Right now we provide all
> packages of PyPI that are directly hosted on PyPI (no packages with external
> download URLs). This project should bring a lot of ease to buildout users
> because PyPI is no longer a single-point-of-failure. Currently you have to
> choose a PyPI mirror manually. For the next project phase we think about a
> smarter mirror selection mechanism that is more transparent to setuptools
> and zc.buildout.
> Suggestions and further support in terms of hardware resources and
> bandwidth are highly appreciated.
> Credits go to Josip Delic and Gottfried Ganssauge of Haufe Mediengruppe for
> their contributions to the original codebase  of z3c.pypimirror and to
> Daniel Kraft of D9T for being doing most of the coding of the package.

Congrats to all!
