There are two types of feature when supporting Python Pypi. If you roll your own modules, the flat repository should work fine. But if you want to sync the modules from the internet. Artifactory has issues.
Today we sync python modules from pypi.python.org/
This gives us a structure of modules under:
pip wants to point to a url like https://pypi.python.org/simple/
Where all the modules folders are on the root path
Trying to artifactory sync from https://pypi.python.org/simple/ gives some errors at this time. I believe it is having trouble following redirects in the https://pypi.python.org/simple/ directory structure ??
