This is ugly...
  • Foswiki.spec needs to point to https host, extension installer doesn't tolerate redirect
  • Everyone needs to update their commit-msg hooks, or they can't commit to github
  • Github webhook needs updating in all 639 repositories.
  • Interwikis need updating.
  • ...

Why do the redirects fail, i.e. for interwikis?

Could be it is an apache misconfiguration.

In general, all other links to http://foswiki.org/Yadda/Yadda?foo=bar should just be fine, meaning this checkin is mostly bogus.

Filed my findings at Item14023.

Redirecting every access to http://foswiki.org is still going to be slower than just serving the results directly.
