I know Zope Corp has another script that generates a local copy by
scanning PyPI through XML-RPC
but it is a full copy.
Yes, zc.mirrorpypislashsimple creates a full copy in the sense that it
mirrors the pages of *every* package. However, it does not mirror the
actual download archives. They are still retrieved from python.org.
zc.mirrorpypislashsimple is not much helpful right now since it does not
mirror the real data (just checked the code and played a bit with it).
A task for our Blackforest sprint would be:
- all to pass-in a configuration file where you define with packages should
be mirrored where each line of the configuration would represent a
This would also fit in our haufe.eggserver infrastructure where we maintain
a local egg repository on the filesystem. zc.mirrorpypislashsimple could
directly sync PyPI with our local egg server.
