Well, almost. 

Picking the pieces back up, I'll stop bickering now [1].

I'm grateful for the offer to include gocept in a more formally trusted relationship. However, I don't think that adds more value and just defers paying back technical debt.

I'll be a bit more aggressive with the migration and plan to do the following things:

In the next days

- Establish a new primary name for our mirror (probably pypi.rzob.gocept.net or something similar)
- Inform our internal team that they should update f.pypi.python.org to the new name
- Make f.pypi.python.org serve 301 redirects to the new name

In two weeks:

- Make f.pypi.python.org serve 401 Gone

This should get your plan back on track.

I'm happy with the proposal otherwise, thanks for taking the time to keep me informed!

PS: Not sure whether I missed anything important in the meantime … ;)

[1] I still feel some need for personal interaction confirming or disproving some of my thoughts, but I don't think it's worthwhile to do that on a mailinglist. Personally I feel a bit stupid for the amount of pain we experience with the packaging right now - especially as we try to stay in touch and contribute. I don't mind the work in general but it would be nice to have less pain … ?
