      Description

      There has been confusion about what is the proper remote url for the typical pypi proxy repository

      The book states at http://books.sonatype.com/nexus-book/reference3/pypi.html#pypi-proxy:

      You can set up a PyPI proxy repository to access a remote repository location, such as the PyPI repository at https://pypi.python.org/pypi. The index is maintained as the default location for Python packages.

      Users end up trying to use https://pypi.python.org/pypi as the remote url, which will fail.

      It should be set to:

      https://pypi.python.org/

      The book should clarify what the typical settings are and not at all imply https://pypi.python.org/pypi will work.
