[Catalog-sig] What is the point of pythonpackages.com?

I wonder what the point of a site like pythonpackages.com is. For my
package (cdecimal) it spreads misinformation on two counts:

  1) The number of downloads cannot be established since cdecimal
     is not hosted on PyPI.

  2) "Now supports Python 3!" is false since cdecimal has supported
     Python3 from the very beginning.

Otherwise it displays Google ads and the same information as PyPI,
only in a less readable manner.
