Honey pot

A bogus project on PyPi is used to track garbage stats. To assure that things are working, consider that the grand total of downloads for that project is actually also 0:

python3 -m simple_pypi_statistics python-bogus-project-honeypot
python-bogus-project-honeypot-1438620531.16.tar.gz    2015-08-03           12
python-bogus-project-honeypot-1438619971.82.tar.gz    2015-08-03          -12
No downloads for python-bogus-project-honeypot.
