Re: Python SNI

If you need the nonstandard python I would suggest rolling a virtualenv for Python in your system. It works fairly well - i've got multiple newer Python running on my Xenial box for things that need it.

Hi Lee,

Ubuntu's Stable Release Updates policy doesn't generally permit adding new features to released packages.

Hi all,


We are currently using Python 2.7.6 that is shipped with Ubuntu 14.04.


My understanding is that Server Name Identification (SNI) is only supported in Python 2.7.9.


Does anyone know if there are plans to include SNI support in the current Ubuntu 14.04 Python version?
