There is a rewrite from http to https in the apache config for
mail.python.org. It was working.

The server was rebooted at about 20/Nov/2015:09:50 (-0500) and since
then the rewrite is apparently not working. I can't see that anything in
the apache configs has changed, and I have tried both reloading and
restarting apache to no avail.

Apparently something changed when the server was rebooted yesterday, but
I don't know what.

Perhaps another postmaster or 'rooter' has an idea.

to devote to this)
