[Python-Dev] HTTPS on bugs.python.org

When I go to http://bugs.python.org/ Firefox warns me that the form on
the left to login (user, password) sends data in clear text (HTTP).
Ok, I switch manually to HTTPS: add "s" in "http://" of the URL.
I log in.
I go to an issue using HTTPS like https://bugs.python.org/issue31250
I modify an issue using the form and click on [Submit Changes] (or
just press Enter): I'm back to HTTP. Truncated URL:
Hum, again I switch manually to HTTPS by modifying the URL:
I click on the "clear this message" link: oops, I'm back to the HTTP world...
So, would it be possible to enforce HTTPS on the bug tracker?
The best would be to always generate HTTPS urls and *maybe* redirect
HTTP to HTTPS.
Sorry, I don't know what are the best practices. For example, should
we use HTTPS only cookies?
