I noticed the issue, and started this thread, because someone posted an 
https::/bugs.python.org link. I ordinarily just go to bugs.python.org 
and get the http connection.  I have https-anywhere installed, but it 
must notice the dodgy certificate and silently not switch. So I never 
knew before tht there was an https connection available, and never 
thought to try it.

Given that we are shipping both login credentials and files over the 
connection, making https routine, with a proper certificate, might be a 
good idea.
