Hi all,

for those of you using tox on your laptop or on some Jenkins server.
You might want to consider using it together with a new project i just
released, a super-fast and auto-updating pypi.python.org caching proxy.  See

for how to set it up.  It usually cuts down tox setup time 
by a factor of 10 for me.  If you have a devpi-server running
at port 3141, you can invoke tox without changing your tox.ini files:

    tox -i ALL=http://localhost:3141/ext/pypi/simple/ ...
which will make tox configure pip-installation to use your devpi cache serve.r
