The python 2.7 documentation for urrlib still has a big warning notice at the top saying:


When opening HTTPS URLs, it does not attempt to validate the server certificate. Use at your own risk! 

I believe this is incorrect since this patch was backported to the 2.7  branch. I checked it, and it verifies SSL certs by default.

I guess the documentation for urllib should be updated to remove that warning?
