[Catalog-sig] PyPI replication project
lists at zopyx.com
Thu Oct 9 12:40:14 CEST 2008
I would like to inform you that we created the "PyPI replication
project" hosted on Launchpad. Driven by the needs of the Zope world
using zc.buildout intensively, we created a package z3c.pypimirror
for mirroring the packages directly hosted on PyPI on a local server.
This removed the dependency from the PyPI server(s) which are a
single-point-of-failure and often had issues in the past with respect to
availability and reliability.
In phase 1 of the project (upcoming soon) we will provide a number of
independent machines (up to five servers) with a full copy of all
packages hosted directly on PyPI.
For phase 2 (next year) we will rework the codebase of z3c.pypimirror
and try to deal in some way with packages hosted externally. In addition
we think about providing some kind of automatic mirror-selection within
setuptools/zc.buildout based on DNS alias entries (subject to be planned).
