Bodhi update submission link:
Vincent, python-requests no longer bundles the match_hostname code as of python-requests-1.1.0-3.
The bug should be filed against python-backports-ssl_match_hostname. There is no new update to be pushed for this package. How should we proceed? Close this ticket by hand? Please advise.
The bundled version of the code was removed in February 2013.
python-backports-ssl_match_hostname update patched for this bug is currently in the testing repository: https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/python-backports-ssl_match_hostname
Toshio did the right thing; this should be closed and the fix should be in the python-backports-ssl_match_hostname package, so while this is vulnerable now, it won't be once the other package is updated.
