This is necessary for Certbot to be able to use the python-requests library

Uploaded the correct patch this time, I hope.

So my issue here is that most applications don't need python-ndg-httpsclient, so adding the rundep would best on the certbot package, so applications like chrome-gnome-shell, docker-compose, etc. won't be suddenly requiring python-ndg-httpsclient.

The reason I had it here was because the error message was that python-requests required the package to be installed, while other times it would say that certbot required a certain package. My guess is that python-ndg-httpsclient is an optional dependency of python-requests. I will do as you suggest though and add the dependency to certbot instead.
