Yes it is possible, if you upload them to your pypi with:

$ python setup.py bdist_egg register -r YOURPYPI upload -r YOURPYPY

You can use chisop, eggbasket, or PloneSoftwareCenter. (and maybe others)

The last one is great if you want to have a developer's website around
your packages,
will a lot of extra features.

It's overkill if you don't need a website.

That's the one in use at http://plone.org/products
