damnit. they shouldn't be, but of course fucking stupid github/gitlab
of *course* use https "bcuz sicurrrrr"

goddamn nuisance.  *sigh* ok leave it for now.

don't put words in my mouth. you're not competent to properly do the
risk assessment.

gpg sign-offs. nothing else properly solves the problem.

> https prevents MitM attacks, so is useful.

completely irrelevant. you've fallen into the usual trap here.

ok. i'm annoyed but given that github and gitlab are beyond our control
there's no point wasting time here.

ftr: https *fails* under certain circumstances (mobile broadband networks)
due to *packet* level data corruption. Three Networks (three.co.uk) is
particularly bad.

some transparent cacheing proxies also manage to corrupt https traffic.
