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
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Do you think we should update to 2.3.0?
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:
"Make Reponse.json() callable, not property"
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.
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^)
We'd be happy to break backwards compatibility here.
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?
python-requests-2.6.0 is in rhel6-base now, so I think we can close this one.
