Cloud PyPI - Mirroring PyPI in the cloud

Update: This project is now canceled, since PyPI is being on hosted on a fastly CDN and the PyPI server itself is hosted on a VM at OSL/OSU.

The proposal was accepted by the PSF in their December 2010 board meeting.

Funding was limited to an initial USD 500 for Amazon costs to see whether the project would succeed.

We've setup an example CDN which only provides caching services to the PyPI server and uses the server as origin:
