http://permalink.gmane.org – All accesses to bugzilla.gnome.org over normal HTTP are now redirected to SSL (HTTPS). It has a valid, CA-signed certificate (by StartCom--recognized by Firefox and Safari and will be recognized by IE later this month). If you'd like to see some of the reasoning behind enforcing SSL (as opposed to just making it optional), see here: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=544234#c13 Anyhow, if you have scripts that interact with Bugzilla, they may not be expecting this redirect, or may not work properly with SSL, so they may have to be updated. -Max (Software)
