Fixed In Version: python-setuptools-0.6.10-4.el6_9
Doc Type: If docs needed, set a value
Doc Text:
Previously, the easy_install utility failed to download packages from the Python Package Index (PyPI) repository. This happened because PyPI has recently switched to using the HTTPS protocol, which easy_install did not support. With this update, easy_install is now able to connect to PyPI using HTTPS, and, as a result, the described problem no longer occurs.
