Description of problem:
The version of python-requests in EPEL at the moment is 1.1.0 and it contains a bug that does not allow it to work with SSL via http proxy - described here https://github.com/kennethreitz/requests/issues/1318

The problem has been fixed in newer versions of python-requests. Can that be updated in EPEL

Comment 1 Arun S A G 2014-08-14 23:53:56 UTC
Do you think we should update to 2.3.0?

Comment 2 Yavor Atanasov 2014-09-09 11:23:39 UTC
Hi Arun,

Sorry for the delayed response. Actually upgrading might be difficult, as the next available release 1.2.0 contains a backwards incompatible change that might break people:

Namely this:
"Make Reponse.json() callable, not property"

Comment 3 Garrett Holmstrom 2014-10-01 00:42:07 UTC
Have you figured out what you plan on doing with python-requests in EPEL 6?  I am trying to plan whether or not I will need to work around this bug and another bug that prevents session variables from working, both of which were fixed upstream in version 1.2.0.

Comment 4 Garrett Holmstrom 2014-10-01 00:47:30 UTC
FWIW, I could handle a major version bump if we're going to go the backwards-incompatible route.  I just can't speak for everybody.  8^)

Comment 5 Steve Traylen 2015-06-15 12:15:26 UTC
We'd be happy to break backwards compatibility here.

Comment 6 Michel Samia 2015-07-16 11:42:05 UTC
I also need a new version of this package on el6. If there is a compatibility problem, somebody should create a package python-requests2 and should slowly deprecate python-requests for example by a patch that will log a warning with a message about deprecation. Makes sense?

Comment 7 Ralph Bean 2015-09-19 01:09:07 UTC
python-requests-2.6.0 is in rhel6-base now, so I think we can close this one.
