Hi, someone probably wants to upload a copy of bzr directly to PyPI
rather than just the indirect registered copy.

Hello lifeless!

Please forgive me if this is the second (or third... I swear I tested it fully
this time!) copy you've received of this message, a bug has forced us to
resend the batch. Sorry for the extra noise D:

This is an automated message because you are listed as an owner or maintainer
of the following project on PyPI:

* bzr

Due to the acceptance of PEP 470, PyPI is going to remove the ability for a
project to host it's files somewhere other than on PyPI, but still have PyPI
instruct installers (such as pip) to go and fetch this file automatically.
PEP 470 removes this feature and any project relying on it will need to either
be moved to hosting on PyPI or, if you wish to continue to host it externally,
you'll need to host your own repository and instruct your users to add that
repository to their installer. To give you time to adjust, this change will not
happen for 3 months, but after that 3 month deadline has expired, unless you
act some or all of the files for the above projects will no longer be found by
automated installers.

If you wish, there is a script available at https://pypi.python.org/pypi/pep470
which can be used to automatically migrate any of the affected files for your
own projects to PyPI.

If you wish to continue to host your files yourself instead of uploading them
to PyPI, then you should follow the instructions at

If you have any questions about the migration, please first check the FAQ at
https://github.com/pypa/pep470/wiki/Frequently-Asked-Questions which will be
updated with any questions and answers that come up during the migration

Here are all of the links that we've discovered for each project of yours which
are not currently hosted on PyPI:


Thanks for your time!
