Package: python-scrapy
Version: 0.22.2-3
Severity: normal

I get the following error when trying to start a new project:

$ scrapy startproject myproject
UserWarning: You do not have the service_identity module installed. Please
install it from <https://pypi.python.org/pypi/service_identity>. Without the
service_identity module and a recent enough pyOpenSSL tosupport it, Twisted can
perform only rudimentary TLS client hostnameverification.  Many valid
certificate/hostname mappings may be rejected.
  verifyHostname, VerificationError = _selectVerifyImplementation()

I've seen that this package has recently been packaged for Debian (python-
service-identity) but it is still not in testing.
