See bug 1224999 comment 3 for details on pip.  F20 version has two copies of affected code.  F21 only has affected match_hostname in bundled distlib.  From a quick look, I could not see if that part of distlib is used by pip.  Can you confirm one way or the other?  F22 version has both copies fixed.

Comment 3 Bohuslav "Slavek" Kabrda 2015-07-01 09:27:39 UTC
- F20 is now EOL and F22 and later have this bug fixed.
- In F21, the only place where match_hostname from bundled distlib is used is _vendor.distlib.util:HTTPSConnection.connect(). The HTTPSConnection is however not used anywhere inside pip or it's bundled libraries, which means that F21 pip version is unaffected. Closing this bug as CURRENTRELEASE.
