> (2) it's not more possible to install argparse on Python 2.7 (...)

Donald Stufft released pip 6.1.1, he reverted the change which prevented to install argparse.

Thanks for the quick fix!

> (1) update.py of openstack/requirements uses req.InstallRequirement.url attribute, but this attribute is gone (replaced with req.InstallRequirement.link.url)
> => see https://bugs.launchpad.net/tempest/+bug/1440984

pip 6.1.1 reintroduced the url attribute but there is a bug in the property :-/

According to pip developers, the problem is that OpenStack should not use Python pip API because the Python API is private and not stable. Only the CLI has a stable API.
