Hi fellow packagers,

as part of a broader https support, many projects have changed there homepages
from plain http to https.

Some notable mentions:

- github.com/*
- sourceforge.net/projects/*
- *.kde.org
- *.gnome.org

So the next time you do some package work, check if your Url: tag is now a
redirect:

$> curl -I http://amarok.kde.org
HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently
Location: https://amarok.kde.org/

Currently, there are ~2000 (sub-)packages [1] which have a permanent redirect
[2].

Kind regards,

Stefan
