ActiveState uses PyPI to get package tarballs in first place. So, for 
example, if John uploads "Foo 0.1" to PyPI (at least register an entry 
.. and point the download URL of tarball), then it will become 
automatically available in the ActiveState repository.

Just like how ppm works with CPAN.

I am also adding some functionality to z3c.pypimirror with respect to 
its external download features .. with the intent to submit patches back 
to the developers.
