The 3.6 installer is the first one that doesn’t use the system installation of OpenSSL. Annoyingly with OpenSSL on OSX you have to options: either use an up-to-date release or have OpenSSL use the system CA trust store, but not both. Sigh…

Could you file an issue on bugs.python.org <http://bugs.python.org/> about this? That way Ned will get notified, and the use of system OpenSSL can be reconsidered for a future 2.7 release.
