I don’t know how carefully you’ve followed this email trail, but the “difficult upstream” has had a policy in place for six months that ensures that you can have the same result with pip and system packages. For six months we have only updated to versions of urllib3 that are actually released, and therefore that are definitely available from pip (and potentially available from the distribution).

The reason this has not been working is because the distributions, when they unbundle us, have not been populating their setup.py to reflect the dependency: only their own metadata. We’ve been in contact with them, and this change is being made in the distributions we have relationships with.
