I've downloaded all packages from PyPI and I'd like to create a
local mirror using devpi.
I had the following idea:
1. create a new index say /root/pypimirror based on /root/pypi
2. upload the entire folder containing 38,000+ packages onto
3. eventually setting /root/pypimirrot to NotVolatile (if this can
be done, somehow)
Another idea would be creating a "parallel" index to /root/pypi and exposing a third index which derives from both.
Does this idea make sense? Is there a better way of doing it, in
particular without having to download everything again from PyPI?
I have another concern: performance. Since 38,000+ packages implies
on large directories in the file system... do you think that devpi
will have troubles managing such amount of packages?
Thanks a lot,
