Re: When should we https our mirrors?

TL;DR: Would we now recommend deb.d.o over httpredir.d.o for production
use e.g. in base images (including for Jessie)?

There still seems to be general grumbling (including a persistent drip
of CI failures and the odd end user bug report) at $dayjob about
failures which are ultimately down to the use of httpredir in the base
container images.

Have we gotten to the point where we consider deb.d.o suitable for
production use? The web page still says Experimental (so I would assume
"not production yet") and I'm not really sure if there will be a
distinction between >=Stretch and <=Jessie in this regards. It looks
like Jessie and earlier get a fallback mode of operation, but is that
mode of operation suitable to be recommended for production?

If not deb.d.o then what would people recommend these days?
