I hope we can add https support.

Have something to say about forums.debian.net itself?

I hope we can add https support.

Um... this is a public forum, where all content is indexed by and available via multiple search engines.

There's nothing sensitive, or confidential on the site. No PII unless someone posts it.

Forgive me if I'm missing something really obvious, but what exactly is the security concern here?

I mean someone may try to get user's password, if we send it in plain text.

This concern gets raised every once in a while. The discussion always goes something like this: viewtopic.php?f=12&t=48639
