Issue #90 wontfix

Missing ipv6 connectivity

created an issue

pypi.python.org is missing ipv6 connectivity, which make pip unusable for ipv6-only hosts. While getting ipv6 connectivity should have the highest priority to fix this problem, ipv6 mirrors could be published on https://pypi.python.org/mirrors as a workaround. At least the missing ipv6 mirrors should be documentated on this site.

    The CDN we use does not currently support ipv6 but it's on their roadmap so we'll get it for free when they do. It's possible that an ipv6 mirror exists, did you check pypi-mirrors.org ?

    Yes, i checked them, and all mirrors were either down or had no ipv6. I rechecked right now. This mirrors have ipv6 connectivity: pypi.gocept.com e.pypi.python.org

    To install a package from an alternative mirror: pip install -i http://$MIRROR/simple $PACKAGENAME

    So someone finding this ticket, will be able to install pypi package, like I did. Maybe you can add a hint to https://pypi.python.org/mirrors?
