as you probably already know, today the PyPI index page (
https://pypi.python.org/pypi?%3Aaction=index) was deprecated and ceased to

Among other things it affected PyCharm IDE that relied on that page to
enable packaging related features from the IDE. As a result users of
PyCharm can no longer install/update PyPI packages from PyCharm.

Here is an issue about that in our tracker:

Given that there are several hundred thouthands of PyCharm users in the
world -- all 3 editions: Professional, Community, and Educational are
affected -- this can lead to a storm of a negative feedback, when people
will start to face the denial of the service.

The deprecation of the index was totally unexpected for us and we weren't
prepared for that. Maybe we missed some announcement.

We will be very happy if the functionality of the index is restored at
least for some short
period of time: please, give as a couple of weeks. That will allow us to
implement a workaround and provide the fix for the several latest major
versions of PyChram.

Does anybody know who is responsible for that decision and  whom to connect
about it? Please help.

Best regards,
