+``--allow-hosts=PATTERNS, -H PATTERNS`` (New in 0.6a6)
+ Restrict downloading and spidering to hosts matching the specified glob
+ patterns. E.g. ``-H *.python.org`` restricts web access so that only
+ packages listed and downloadable from machines in the ``python.org``
+ domain. The glob patterns must match the *entire* user/host/port section of
+ the target URL(s). For example, ``*.python.org`` will NOT accept a URL
+ like ``http://python.org/foo`` or ``http://www.python.org:8080/``.
+ Multiple patterns can be specified by separting them with commas. The
+ default pattern is ``*``, which matches anything.
+ In general, this option is mainly useful for blocking EasyInstall's web
+ access altogether (e.g. ``-Hlocalhost``), or to restrict it to an intranet
+ or other trusted site. EasyInstall will do the best it can to satisfy
+ dependencies given your host restrictions, but of course can fail if it
+ can't find suitable packages. EasyInstall displays all blocked URLs, so
+ that you can adjust your ``--allow-hosts`` setting if it is more strict
+ than you intended. Some sites may wish to define a restrictive default
+ setting for this option in their `configuration files`_, and then manually
+ override the setting on the command line as needed.
