Task Todo List Find alternative origin for ftp:// resources

2024-04-16 - kpcyrd

The following packages currently use source= entries with the ftp:// protocol. In addition to being unencrypted they can't be downloaded with a regular http client and need special code for little gain (compared to e.g. git+https://, which also requires special handling).

Ideally find https:// origins for them, alternatively use http:// or import the source code from VCS.

Please build a new release so the .SRCINFO of our released package doesn't contain ftp:// anymore.
