Using urllib2 to access an https site using a proxy 
doesn't work. It always returns "<HTML> </HTML>"

I've been looking around for bug reports on this and 
code samples, but all that I've got were emails/forum 
posts dating back to 2003 warning that the HTTPS over 
Proxy in urllib2 isn't implemented in Python!

Is this true?

Yes, there is no special support for using https proxies
(via the CONNECT method) in httplib or urllib2. shows how to do it, but the
patch is not good enough to be added to the standard
library.  Feel free to write a better patch!

Please close this, since it's really a feature request, not
a bug.

I stumbled about this here because of testing the Ubuntuone project:

The client for the ubuntuone cloud computing suffers from being
unable to connect through a HTTPS proxy.  May be some of the folks
at Canonical are now willing to spend some time on this issue here?
It is recorded in the Ubuntu tracker as:

I think a lot of the corporate Ubuntu Linux users behind restrictive 
firewalls are affected by this problem.

I noticed this one yesterday. There is a similar issue Issue1424152, the
fix for which is available in Py2.7. Would you try to that patch?

Well, the fix for this same as that for Issue1424152.
Closing this issue as it is already handled.
