Add Support For PYPI Packages Using PIP
Skype & I believe other Microsoft teams heavily rely on Python for Build orchestration, testing, data analysis, and other functions. We would like to use PYPI packages natively through PIP, rather than having to ingest them in to Git repos to consume them.
It would be great if VSTS could support PYPI packages through PIP clients https://pypi.python.org/pypi.
We’re starting work on PyPi support in Package Management. Keep an eye on the release notes over the next few months for more info!

Until something official is released, you might consider my extension for Python at https://marketplace.visualstudio.com/items?itemName=stevedower.python
For installing PyPI packages, there is a "Dependencies" field on most tasks.
