Yes, that is correct. I missed recollecting it in the first place. I
guess, I did not see using a content manager withing another context
manager block as something nice.. (nothing wrong but just the indented
code with additional wrap of exceptional handler).

But yes, it would be better to wrap it with transient_internet call.
Shall do.

I tried that before responding, it does not silence the Resource
Warning. The fix (at least for these cases where Connection:close
header is not sent) lies in closing request in the urllib.request. It
is tricky as the server is not sending a Connection:close header which
httplib relies on to close the socket.
