The _ssl module is built against OpenSSL. 

Since I couldn't find any OpenSSL DLLs in my Python install dir and due
to the size of the _ssl.pyd, I assume that it is statically linked
against OpenSSL. 

That's all fine, but then I'm missing the OpenSSL license and
attribution notice somewhere in the installer, the README of the
installation or elsewhere.

The download page should also include a hint that the Windows installer
does include crypto software, since in some countries it is illegal to
download and/or use crypto software, see e.g.

Would you like to work on a patch?

No - I don't know anything about the Windows MSI installer for Python.

Just wanted to bring the obvious breach of the OpenSSL license
to your attention.
