SSL certificate issues with reverse proxy subdomains when using python-requests with Python < 2.7.9

So I had an interesting issue today which I couldn’t find many Google results for, so I’ll create one! Many thanks to sigmavirus24 from #python-requests on Freenode for this – I’m just passing it on.

Hardware refresh, March 2015

Fedora 22 Alpha, Ipsilon Test Day, openQA progress, and ownCloud status
