The problem here is that the python-httplib2 code will use for the proxying. That in turn only adds support
for proxy via the "CONNECT" method that requires a acl in squid. Not this is needed for https based proxying, but
for plain http this is not needed. The attach patch from the google project page fixes this by adding a new proxy
type for http with no tunnel. I think this is a good approach. The problem is of course that we add a interface to
a public library this way that is not part of upstream. So a better approach may actually be to "import socks"
first in python-httplib2 so that e.g. piston-mini-client can provide its own socks implementation with the patch applied.

Both the fix for python-httplib2 and the fixed branch for python-piston-mini-client are needed currently.

The attachment "Fix for python-httplib2 based on the patch in the google project" of this bug report has been identified as being a patch. The ubuntu-reviewers team has been subscribed to the bug report so that they can review the patch. In the event that this is in fact not a patch you can resolve this situation by removing the tag 'patch' from the bug report and editing the attachment so that it is not flagged as a patch. Additionally, if you are member of the ubuntu-sponsors please also unsubscribe the team from this bug report.

I think the attached piston-mini-client is actually sufficient and we can avoid the httplib2 patch.

This bug was fixed in the package piston-mini-client - 0.6+bzr48-0ubuntu1

piston-mini-client (0.6+bzr48-0ubuntu1) oneiric; urgency=low

  * new bzr snapshot of the pending release:
    - work with http proxies that do not support CONNECT type of
      proxy (CONNECT acl/support is still required for https)
