Add HTTPS link to MASTER_SITES
Comment 1 Matthias Andree freebsd_committer 2019-07-09 21:39:41 UTC
Please add a few words of discussion or motivation why we should do this. 

We have checksums, but that argument goes either way, either (a) we don't need HTTPS, or - opposite argument - (b) if we add untrusted sites, we'll still trust the tarball if the checksum matches.

Log:
  Switch db5/db6 to download from Oracle's https:// sites.

  The http:// sites issue 301-type redirects to https:// so we can spare
  everyone the roundtrip.

In fact, Oracle offer the files by https:// as well and redirects from http:// to https://. I have committed a change tracking that, so this one isn't needed.
