Hallo Marius,

>> After a few hours I found the following article:

I have not found a official website.
I would have expected an info on the page https://pypi.python.org/pypi.
Where can I find an official statement?

Apparently exist prog on https://pypi.python.org which use http,
but ypi.python.org does not allow http.
It's not easy.

A user should be able to decide for himself whether to use HTTP or HTTPS.

regards Heiko.
