+<p><b>The public PyPI mirrors using *.pypi.python.org DNS aliases are being
+    deprecated as specified in
+    <a href="http://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0449/">PEP 449 (Removal of
+    the PyPI Mirror Auto Discovery and Naming Scheme)</a>. Package
+    files uploaded to PyPI are now served through a CDN which is more reliable.
+    You are welcome
+    to continue to run your own private mirrors, but the DNS aliases will be
+    shut down on February 15th, 2014.</b></p>
+<p><b>Additionally, the "mirror authenticity" API specified in the PEP below
+will be deprecated in the near future, and use of it is discouraged.</b></p>
  <p>The PyPI repository provides alternative locations that store the packages.
  This service is primarily intended to be used by automated download tools
  (such as setuptools or pip); ask your tool vendor to make use of this infrastructure.
  <p>More mirrors may get added over time; you can use the DNS CNAME record
  last.pypi.python.org to find out which mirror is last in alphabetical order.</p>
