SSL in Debian Forums

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

I understand that in order to use SSL, the server should need extra-power, as more CPU and memory would be required. I think it's worth, though.

Anyways, Let's encrypt is now issuing free/gratis SSL certificates, and I would consider this option: https://letsencrypt.org/

eg: FreeBSD forums are encrypted (though it's the official one). https://forums.freebsd.org/

All that is fine. Truth to be told: The forum is pretty abandoned, when it comes to administration.
It is pointless to ask here for enhancements.

At least for login / password, thank.

I upvote using SSL on the forums.
IT MAKES SENSE
Any website which you enter informaiton such as passwords should be secure.

More and more websites are using it. Even yahoo.
The most recent website that could have any relevance here being linux mint.

They were hacked recently, their .iso images and forums. At this time 0% of their website used https.
Now the linux mint forums and site uses https. The blog is the only part that doesn't.

Changes to password policies
http://blog.linuxmint.com/?p=3007
All forums users should change their passwords.
Beware of hacked ISOs if you downloaded Linux Mint on February 20th!
