2. List any affected packages or components:


3. How reproducible:

  > Able to reproduce by comparing the output of these two commands:

# scl enable rh-python36 'python -mpip._vendor.requests.certs'
# python3 -mpip._vendor.requests.certs

  > Actual results:

The output if pip is using bundled certs is:


Versus system certs:


4. Why does the customer need this? (List the business requirements here)

To be able to access private secure pip/pypy repos without running into issues validating certificate.

Comment 6 Charalampos Stratakis 2020-09-16 13:34:49 UTC

$ scl enable rh-python36 'python -m pip._vendor.requests.certs' returns /opt/rh/rh-python36/root/usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/pip/_vendor/requests/cacert.pem , the bundled cert. It should return /etc/pki/tls/certs/ca-bundle.crt
