Authentication against restricted repositories while bootstraping
is there any interest in having an authentication while you are bootstrapping your project. The authentication works for the find-links parameter in the buildout section and downstreamed for the eggs matched to index list in the restricted repository.
I developed a small piece of code which is doing such things.
The credentials are taken from a ~.pypirc file.
If an url is given to the open_with_auth method from package_index.py i am comparing the url to the repository urls which are in the repository sections of the pypirc file.
If credentials are found they are integrated in the open_with_auth authentication mechanism.
