The Python Holy Grail

with 2 comments

This checkin to python brings a long-awaited (and sorely needed, IMO) enhancement to python: SSL certificate verification support. Once the API support percolates up from socket through the various network libraries in python proper, for the vast majority of developers there will no longer be a need for PyOpenSSL, M2Crypto, or rhnlib.

  2. That is a really cool feature to have in the core libraries. I’ll have to grab the latest version from svn and try it out.
