@FiloSottile requested issue #29591 to be considered for backport to the next 1.10 minor release.

Agreed, we should not. Depending on how many packages this will break, we should consider backporting it, too. It's true that it requires a server misconfiguration, but it breaks user expectations about not having to trust their network.

@gopherbot please open two backport issues.

The main issue is not going to land until after 1.12, so we won't be backporting to 1.10.
