Package: python-urllib3
Version: 1.8.2-1
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

The original bug report is here: https://lists.debian.org/debian-python/2014/06/msg00003.html

In short, a fix that made it into Python 2.7.7 and 3.4.1 changes the behavior
of httplib.HTTPConnection's tunneling handling. pip is among the modules
affected by this change: it is unusable if one is behind an HTTP proxy, as it
tries to connect via HTTPS to https://pypi.python.org/simple/pip/ and fails.

A fix for this issue was committed to urllib3, and is part of the 1.8.3
release. Please consider updating to it (this release also contains a handful
of other bug fixes too).
