Getting a stable virtual env


This one should be in plain text, sorry guys I'm trying to get used to
this new mail address and client.

Hi ppl,

I'm trying to figure out the whole virtualenv story.
Right now I'm using it to creating an environment for our upcoming
debian upgrade to squeeze.

I'm doing some tests in our current distrib (python 2.5).
I have come to realize that a lot of packages in the version I'm
interested in are not available anymore on pypi. The pip installer
fails a lot.

Squeeze features python 2.7 so I'm pretty sure that everything will
work fine. I've actually tested it. The question is, how do I protect
myself from future package removal ?
Do I absolutely need to run a local pypi server (I've seen some python
package doing this), and mirror all the packages I'm interested in ?

cheers,

JM
