This is similar to my proposal[1], using a seperate VHOST that would allow HTTP
access. It's clear in the URL what is going on, and most people will be
using HTTPS but there are very good reasons for not using HTTPS. You just
might not have thought of them yet.

[1]: https://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2014/07/msg00480.html

The main one is that there are places in the world you just can't use HTTPS
for legal reasons and the second one being that there is hardware that just
can't handle HTTPS.
