This morning the infrastructure staff executed on the directives in PEP 449 regarding the removal of DNS entries for the PyPI mirroring infrastructure.
Reference: http://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0449/
The following DNS records were removed:
  - a.pypi.python.org
  - b.pypi.python.org
  - c.pypi.python.org
  - d.pypi.python.org
  - e.pypi.python.org
  - f.pypi.python.org
  - g.pypi.python.org
  - last.pypi.python.org
The copy on the PyPI website was updated to reflect these changes https://pypi.python.org/mirrors
Additionally the redirection infrastructure for these hostnames was removed from our HAproxy configuration at OSUOSL.
All requests for cheeseshop.python.org will continute to redirect to https://pypi.python.org with their appropriate HTTP query.
