The Python Cheese Shop!

Big thanks to everyone who helped get this thing going, including AMK for his help this morning getting the finishing touches made.

Please help spread the word.

Update: Interesting, the slashdot announcement didn't make the front page. After all this time with people asking where Python's CPAN is... ho hum. The post did generate this nice spoof by TripMaster Monkey:

Owner: Certainly, sir! What would you like?

Customer: No matter...have you any testoob?
Owner:, sir.

Customer: No no no...don't tell me, I'm keen to guess...

No, removing the /pypi part confused the poor code too much, so we kept it.

Besides, there's also /packages.
