The Warehouse team has improved the new PyPI, available for you to check out at https://pypi.org/ , to the point where we would love for you to try it out, test it, and give us bug reports.
https://wiki.python.org/psf/WarehousePackageMaintainerTesting has guidelines, suggestions for things to test, and how to contact Warehouse developers. Since Warehouse must be a reimplementation of the existing PyPI, please particularly let us know of any differences, missing features, or incorrect behavior that pypi.org exhibits that affect your package-related workflows. Feedback on user experience, accessibility, and overall ease of use are welcome.
This isn't the big public beta yet, where we really push the message widely to get less experienced users to test the site. We'll be soliciting feedback on other concerns soon!
We're hosting four livechat hours this week where Warehouse maintainers will be in IRC, in #pypa-dev on Freenode https://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=#pypa-dev , and specifically available to talk about problems you run into, or about how to hack on Warehouse.
Tuesday Feb 27th: 1700 UTC / noon-1pm EST

Hope this is useful!

I wrote down my proposal for adding config file support to devpi. Please
take a look at https://github.com/devpi/devpi/issues/502 and comment if
you disagree on some behaviour or give a thumbs up if it looks good.
