Yeah it was removed: https://twitter.com/VictorStinner/status/1155824328455479296
I'm not sure what this means for Plone's upgrade path.
Short term solution would be to upload the 2.2 sdist to http://dist.plone.org/thirdparty/
People who remove things from pypi (i should stop typing here)
...yes, they should ***** .....avoiding a discussion about a CoC violation :)
It's curious that pypi even allows deletion of packages. That should be only for extraordinary cases, ie. extremely rare, and not unilateral.
No, you can (still) remove your own projects and your own releases.
Meanwhile someone captured the package on PyPI and replaced it with its own unrelated "Trollius" package...so much winning...this amount of unprofessionalism by a core Python developer and Redhat maintainer makes me just sick.
That's Jason Madden.
I suppose the package name is appropriate.... "troll"......ius
