Looks good, but the page suffers from information overload.
I basically want to know given a package X, the download and release
history(timeline) of it along with the package details.

Also, i want to know whether it would be 'legally' correct if i present the
data in my website in a 'better way' and link to pypi for downloading the
The idea is I want to develop a Python Toolbox that the community doesnt
have presently (i am working on a prototype
here<http://pytoolbox.appspot.com/>- the site is still in its alpha
and i am working on it). Presenting
information in a much visually appealing way and also helping to choose
between the packages would be the goal. Any money generated will be used for
promoting Python in India (like sponsoring python based events or tech
contests). (I can write more, but reserve it for latter)
