[New-bugs-announce] [issue23239] SSL match_hostname does not accept IP Address

New submission from Ádám Zsigmond:

ssl.match_hostname does not accept the ca certificate if the hostname matches the ip address. 

I am trying to connect to a servert with a cacert by IP address but I get an error message like: '' hostname does not match '<hostname_in_cacert>'

The IP Address is in the ca certificate, so it should be accepted.
