Disable SSL verification of setuptools for buildout
setuptools-0.7 introduced verification of SSL certificates. This feature, however, is not configurable (yet?), which makes it impossible to install packages from a custom package index with a self-signed certificate, for example.
This package is a very small, monkey-patching buildout extension that simply sets “ssl available” to false. Use it like so:
[buildout] extensions = buildout.disablessl
Python 2.7.9 activated SSL certificate verification by default, too. When using this version or newer it is disabled, too.
WARNING: Using this extension disables SSL verification (duh), so you make yourself susceptible to man-in-the-middle attacks (among other things). Use with caution!
