Re: [opensuse] zypper addrepo - http:// vs. https://

Why would 'we' want any mirrors using plain http?
It is more the other way around - why would a mirror want to offer
https:// ?

I had a customer once who had an IPS (Tippingpoint) that would throw
false positive hits on a particular rpm. It would block the download
99% of the way through, giving fits to zypper. The only practical fix
in this case was to wait until the particular package was updated again
and the false positive went away. The IPS didn't do MITM, so https would
have hidden the false positive.
