Our mirror is now HTTPS enabled, same path as HTTP ie. 

We do however recommend using HTTP and signatures rather than relying 
on HTTPS for file integrity.

While the CPU load of HTTPS on clients is negligable, the server CPU 
load becomes quite a task for organizations like ACC that are running 
on 5+ years old donated hardware. Especially when combined with the 
goal of being able to push multiple tens of gigabits...
