Most source files contain the "default" copyright-header (also build by a
script in devtools/copyright_header.py), which points out that the MIT
license can be found in the COPYING file or at
However, the provided link is 1) using http where it could use https, 2)
resulting in a redirect (https://opensource.org/licenses/mit-license.php)
I am strongly in favor of using https where possible (I guess there are
many other non-ssl links in the code base, but lets tackle the easier ones
I propose that I
1) create a issue on github,
2) `sed -i` the relevant links,
3) create a PR on github,
4) come back to the mailing list.
This change would affect a few hundred files I guess.
A question remaining is this change would require a
copyright-year-extension (to 2018), too.
An example header can be seen e.g. here
I'd be happy about quick feedback - do not know the culture here, yet.
