Provides utilities for making your own python package index.
basketweaver is a tool for creating your own package index out of a directory full of eggs. You can then point to this index with e.g. zc.buildout or setuptools and thus be independant of PyPI.
Here is a quick example on how to install and use it:
easy_install basketweaver cd <a/directory/with/eggs/> makeindex *
This will create an index folder with links to all eggs.
You can then make point a webserver to this directory and use this link in your zc.buildout configuration or easy_install command.

added support for bz2 files and cleaned up tar file handling to use open() instead of gzopen(). See http://docs.python.org/library/tarfile.html for more info. [mrtopf]
