[Distutils] pypi protocol

I'm fairly interested in the internals of pypi.

Ultimately pypi is a HTTP interface to a package database. 
I went looking for a document, blog post or anything describing the communication between pypi client and server.

I ended up reading pypiserver's source code to find out the internals. 

Is there a reason why there haven't been a PEP describing the pypi interface ?
