A changeset to switch to python-requests has been merged into pywikibot-core.
Note that config.proxy support doesnt exist. requests will read your
environment variables to find a proxy. If this doesnt work for you,
please raise a bug.
A minimum version of requests is not specified anywhere. If you find
a problem with older versions of requests, please raise bugs and we'll
either try to fix them or set a minimum supported version if a fix
Please test so we can fix any critical problems before releasing PR2 into pip.
Especially retest any problem which was http related, as it may now be fixed ;-)
