Debian crazyness


the python-tz 2016.7-0.3 updates is in fact 2017.2 The line to watch out for in “Apply patch from upstream to assume tzdata/2017a abbreviations for timezones.”


requests bundles a patched version of urllib3, Debian unbundles, this leads to a boat-load of bugs, check vdirsyncer’s issue tracker

I can’t really decide if it’s Debian or requests who are at fault here.
