Beginning with Python 2.7.9 and 3.4.3, distutils uploads to chishop ( now fail with a 501 NOT IMPLEMENTED. This error looks very similar to the error that Twine triggered in

I acknowledge that chishop is old and probably abandoned, but I also expect that a minor update (such as 3.4.2 to 3.4.3) should not break. I understand that 2.7.9 may have special consideration in this regard, so I'll focus on 3.4.3.

I expect these changes in protocol may also affect other HTTP services, though it may be isolated to distutils uploads.

Donald, can you speak to changes in Python 3.4.3 that might have behavior in common with Twine that would have affected distutils uploads?

Can we have more information from the chishop logs?

I wonder if it's this?

There's nothing logged in the chishop logs except the POST request. I suspect dstufft is right. I'll try backing out that change and see what effect that has.

Confirmed. Backing out that change restores the behavior. If I trust the commit description (and it looks reasonable), the issue really does lie with chishop, though for compatibility, I may look to patch it.

Thanks dstufft for the reference.

Ultimately, we've decided not to patch chishop nor to address the issue in the stdlib, but instead we've replaced chishop with devpi.
