Yes, in it's current state it's pretty basic. We are working on
rolling out an internal version of PyPi at work to assist with
distribution of our applications so I'm working on full compatibility
with the official PyPi. We're still a little ways out but are moving
in the right direction.

I'm maintaining a todo list within my fork at
http://github.com/mcrute/chishop/blob/master/TODO and would very much
appreciate any input you might have as to which features are most
important for official compatibility and what is missing from that
