I've just submitted PEP 476, on enabling certificate validation by default for HTTPS clients in Python. Please have a look and let me know what you think.
The two most commons answers I get to "Why did you switch to go?" are "Concurrency" and "The stdlib HTTP client verifies TLS by default."
In a work related survey of webhook providers I found that only ~7% of HTTPS URLs would be affected by a change like this.
