Package: www.debian.org
Severity: minor

Dear Maintainer,

I'm not completely positive that this is the correct place for this bug
report, but I don't know of anywhere else which would be better. Please
feel free to reassign if appropriate.

Whenever possible, I prefer to connect to Websites via HTTPS. This
includes all Debian Websites.

When I connect to http://get.debian.org/ in a Web browser, I am
redirected to https://www.debian.org/CD/, which is a HTTPS site.
However, the initial connection attempt is made over HTTP, and is
potentially subject to external observation.

When I connect to https://get.debian.org/, I get a near-instant
"connection refused" or "failed to connect" error. Firefox reports
"Unable to connect", w3m reports "Failed to load", and wget reports
"Connection refused".

Initial testing seems to indicate that the same basic behavior occurs
with cdimage.debian.org, which is the old name for the service now
provided by get.debian.org.

Please make it possible to connect to get.debian.org via HTTPS and have
the redirection function properly.

As Paul Wise noted in the former comment, https://get.debian.org does
redirect now to https://www.debian.org/CD and gives no error.
I think the problem is solved; so I'm closing this bug.
Feel free to reopen the bug if I overlooked something.
