Re: Overlay repo on github




Ah, I see, even though I use http it still redirects to https...

Is it hard to add support for https? Any plans to do that?

I'm trying to setup a cygwin overlay repo right on github, here:

https://github.com/igagis/cygwin-repo

But when I pass the repo URL to setup utility as follows:

http://github.com/igagis/cygwin-repo/raw/master/

it does not work. Setup utility tries to download setup.xz and just stalls with 0% progress bar, and the only option is to Cancel the setup.


So, the question is what is wrong? Could there be some redirections happening on github which the setup program does not support?

It looks like when using this 'raw content' URLs to github it works as usual file tree, shouldn't it work?

This is because Cygwin's setup supports http but not https.
