> could you explain why is that a problem ?

It produces significant load on the master. If you look at the web
stats, e.g for September:


you see that there had been 5671455 hits, or 41%, of accesses through

The problem with wget mirroring is that it needs to read *many*
pages, to find out the *few* changes.

FWIW, it's also the case that 4940769 hits originate from
France. Could it be that you are alone responsible for 40% of
the traffic on PyPI?
