[josm-dev] HTTPS changes on osm.org

Hi,
Tonight osm.org sysadmins briefly switched to another root CA for their
https certificates (StartSSL), which is not included in Java Root CA
default list. As a direct consequence it caused download/upload errors for
all JOSM users since we enabled HTTPS access by default.

This issue is discussed there:
https://github.com/openstreetmap/operations/issues/2#issuecomment-75379077

If we can't find a practical solution we'll have to disable HTTPS by
default.

I propose to postpone the February release a few days until we clarify the
situation. If we need to disable https, the sooner the better.

Cheers,
Vincent
