New submission from Julian O <pythontracker at somethinkodd.com>:

In 2014, urlretrieve was changed to accept a context parameter to configure, for example, SSL settings.

Ref: https://github.com/python/cpython/commit/b206473ef8a7abe9abf5ab8776ea3bcb90adc747

However, 2.7.14 documentation does not mention this parameter.

> urllib.urlretrieve(url[, filename[, reporthook[, data]]])

Ref: https://docs.python.org/2/library/urllib.html
