[Python-Dev] [RELEASE] Python 2.7.15


I would guess that the folks who end up supporting python 2 past 2020
(either as distributors or as library authors) will have an easier time of
it if python 2's ssl module gets resynced with python 3 before the eol. But
I suppose it's up to them to do the work... and probably other changes like
tls 1.3 support are more important than MemoryBIO? The only way I'd expect
the MemoryBIO backport to really matter is if there ends up being a period
when pip drops support for everything except the last python 2 micro
release, and wants to switch to PEP 543 mode everywhere. (Pip is special
because everyone else who needs fancy SSL features can 'pip install
pyopenssl', but that doesn't work for pip itself.)

But so far pip has never done anything like this, and I don't think keeping
support for pre-PEP 543 Pythons will be difficult either, so this doesn't
seem super compelling.
