New issue 3842 by yaneurab...@gmail.com: 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
https://code.google.com/p/reviewboard/issues/detail?id=3840 , 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.
