Description Philip Withnall 2015-06-09 16:38:09 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #89682 +++

As with anongit, please enable HTTPS on download.freedesktop.org, then projects like libnice can symlink their release directories into /srv/download.freedesktop.org/www/$project and have HTTPS for release downloads. This eliminates the possibility of downloads being MitMed and it not being detected because nobody ever manually checks SHA sums or signatures.

download.fd.o essentially only worked by accident, due to having a wildcard DNS entry (sigh). Does anyone actually still use it?
Comment 2 Tollef Fog Heen 2016-02-15 21:18:35 UTC
We now have TLS enabled for www.freedesktop.org and projects can use /software there to store their packages.
