I've now raised this issue with the infrastructure team. The current
hosting arrangements for bugs.python.org were put in place when the
PSF didn't have any on-call system administrators of its own, but now
that we do, it may be time to migrate that service to a location where
we can switch to a more appropriate SSL certificate.
Anyone interested in following the discussion further may wish to join
