shutdown plain HTTP reseeding - disable remaining 4 http url's in

We have enough server providing su3-files over HTTPS and get an alternate way of reseeding on client side.

I can confirm that most of the traffic that comes to is unwanted botnet traffic or ancient versions of i2pd. There's hardly any legit traffic coming in on port 80.

  • Owner changed from killyourtv to backup
  • Status changed from new to assigned

#1136 checked in, see that ticket for revs
Removed all HTTP defaults in 85f6139fdf97a8859942e2af6f6a1d91778219e7 to be 0.9.19-6.
Reassigning to 'backup' to asking remaining reseed hosts to turn off http, at their convenience.

Doesn't have to wait for the 0.9.20 release. I verified with orignal that he's ok with this also. HTTPS has been preferred over HTTP since late 2011, and HTTPS-only has been the default since late 2014.

For the record, still works, but reseeding will not work anymore without HTTPS.

❯ curl -I -A Wget/1.11.4
HTTP/1.1 410 Gone

Both and now display a simple informative message (text could be improved) when accessed via a web browser.
