I hope to have the time to investigate also this:

Also, could you see if using Python3 the connection to
It conditionally works. Using curl, I found that TLSv1_0 or TLSv1_1
will support a successful connection, but only if the maximum
SSL_VERSION is constrained to TLSv1_0 or TLSv1_1 (e.g. curl -v --tlsv1.1
--tls-max 1.1 https://pub.orcid.org). Without the max, the connection
$ curl --tlsv1.1 https://pub.orcid.org
curl: (35) error:14094410:SSL routines:ssl3_read_bytes:sslv3 alert
The urllib3 failure was similar, but I do not know how to set tls-max
with urllib3. I could only find the option with curl. I could set up a
custom HTTPAdapter as suggested at
to set ssl_version=ssl.PROTOCOL_TLSv1_1 but the ssl module doesn't have
the SSLVERSION_MAX_TLSv1_1 value that curl has. I could solve it with
pycurl using c.setopt(pycurl.SSLVERSION, pycurl.SSLVERSION_TLSv1_1 |
Evidently the orcid server only supports TLSv1.0 and TLSv1.1 and no
higher (why haven't they activated TLSv1.3 yet?!), while curl and
urllib3 without tls-max first test TLSv1.3 and then quit without
cascading downwards once they receive the TLSv1.3 handshake failure.
Which is rather odd behaviour when I think about it. The whole point of
supporting multiple protocol versions is to try the next available
version if the first one doesn't work.
Th package build was successful on my system but gives build-time

the phone, but it's better to look from a PC.
I had a closer look. The failing tests were in python2 only, coming
from the non-ascii (Gërman http://Königsgäßchen.de/straße and Japanese
http://ヒ:キ@ヒ.abc.ニ/ヒ?キ#ワ) unicode url tests. So from one perspective we
don't need to worry so much about them, we could just disable them (e.g.
prepend @onlyPy3 to test_parse_url and test_url_vulnerabilities in
test_util.py). We'll be dropping python2 any way in the near future.
On the other hand, given the nature of the vulnerabilities and the
possible uses of urllib3, it's probably best not to leave python2
untested, especially since they are known to pass on python2 anyway in
the right conditions. Probably there is some package that should be
added to Build-Depends to enable python2 tests to pass, though I have no
idea which that package might be.
