Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2014-09-22 08:10:50 UTC
From ${URL} :

It was discovered that the python-requests Proxy-Authorization header was never re-evaluated when a 
redirect occurs. The Proxy-Authorization header was sent to any new proxy or non-proxy destination 
as redirected.

@maintainer(s): after the bump, in case we need to stabilize the package, please let us know if it is ready for the stabilization or not.

Fixed in 2.3.0 already.
Comment 2 Dirkjan Ochtman (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2014-09-23 18:38:29 UTC
So 2.3.0 was already being stabilized in bug 513278. CC'ing the rest of the arches here to bump priority a little bit.
