It is also available at http://cheeseshop.python.org/pypi/ - which is where 
EasyInstall looks for it.

(EasyInstall never uses query strings to access the package index, so that 
users can create and use alternative package indexes without needing any 
dynamic technologies; everything easy_install needs can be done with Apache 
directory indexes and perhaps some index.html files.)
