There are, now, a couple more features to the previously announced PyPM 
Index that I think would be of interest if you are a developer of Python 
packages on PyPI.

1. an RSS feed for each author that shows the recently failing builds 
(eg: to identify bugs in releases)
2. The "import" feature shows if multiple packages provide the same 
import (eg: site-packages/tests) ... and, map packages to imports and 
vice-versa. See the "import conflicts" section for interesting set of cases.

For more details, see my blog post:
