I feel there are two things that would be good to resolve here.
1. We need to agree on a single standard name for the central
repository of Python packages. Right now there are 2.5
(Cheeseshop, PyPI, Package Index). The URL should reflect
the name in an obvious way.
2. We need to pick a name that is easy to spell and pronounce.
("PyPI", "pieshop", "pyshop", "pyeshop" all have the problem
that one is unlikely to guess the correct spelling.)
But that's just about the name. The original motivation for my
post about Cheeseshop, is that it would be nice if it were easier
to find packages in it. The issue of search/navigation/access
seems to have been forgotten in this flurry about the name.
