Description

The instruction on the download page indicates the availability of Django 1.6a1 via pip however, it seems that someone forgot to push the package to PyPi.
https://www.djangoproject.com/download/

I believe that's an issue of the download page itself, not with the packaging.

The view that renders this page can be found there: https://github.com/django/djangoproject.com/blob/master/releases/views.py#L9-L40

Replying to bmispelon:
The views.py is fine.
From download.html (https://github.com/django/djangoproject.com/blob/master/templates/releases/download.html#L41), it appears the preview_version should also be uploaded to PyPI, but I'm not sure.

No, preview_version shouldn't be uploaded to PyPI, otherwise pip install Django would install it.

This is a bug in the website, not in the release process.

Oh, that makes sense. Thanks for your reply. :)
