Éric Araujo <merwok at netwok.org> added the comment:

The idea is to add a short example in Doc/howto/urllib2.rst.  Senthil explained how to do things on #14144 (“obtain the redirected URL and then POST to [it]”), and the example should be introduced by a clear warning about security/misbehavior risks (this is why I’m not adding the “easy” keyword to this report).

If you would like to propose a patch, you can find instructions on how to get and edit the source for the docs in the devguide.  You can also write to the beginner-friendly core-mentorship mailing list (link in the devguide or on mail.python.org) to request help or guidance.
