+<p>If you'd like to use a mirror, resources like

 <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>
- <p>You can also manually point these tools to mirrors, or use them in the
- web browser, by using one of these host names instead of pypi.python.org:</p>
- <ul>
- <li><a href="http://b.pypi.python.org/">b.pypi.python.org</a></li>
- <li><a href="http://c.pypi.python.org/">c.pypi.python.org</a></li>
- <li><a href="http://d.pypi.python.org/">d.pypi.python.org</a></li>
- <li><a href="http://e.pypi.python.org/">e.pypi.python.org</a></li>
- <li><a href="http://f.pypi.python.org/">f.pypi.python.org</a></li>
- </ul>
-
- <p>For real-time status of the mirrors, including response time and age
- (freshness) see <a href="http://pypi-mirrors.org/">http://pypi-mirrors.org/</a>.</p>
-
- <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>

 <p>Use the <a href="https://pypi.python.org/pypi/bandersnatch">bandersnatch</a>
 mirroring client to set up your own mirror.</p>
