New issue 3842 by rbtools should use the requests module instead of depending on urllib to do things

What version are you running?


While trying to deconstruct what's going wrong for , I'm more convinced that the problem with the original issue is that rbtools doesn't completely setup SSL certificates/information properly, which causes issues down the line if rbtools can't verify an ssl cert. Furthermore, there's a lot of complexity added to deal with opening URLs, generalizing connections, etc that don't need to be done in rbtools as it adds unnecessary complexity to the package.

The requests module does a pretty awesome job at working with HTTP requests and the API doesn't change all that often. I highly recommend switching the underlying code from six to requests.
