Https by default for opkg?


Is there a reason why opkg doesn't use https by default?

i.e. change /etc/opkg/distfeeds.conf and bundle ca-certificates

https support (SSL libraries) are not included by default in the release builds.

Is that due to size limitations?

Yes, furthermore the authenticity of the downloaded packages is end-to-end verified by usign and doesn't require SSL transport encryption to ensure the packages' integrity.

Interesting, thanks.
