No opinions on the rest of the patch ;).  I'm generally in favor of
HTTPS, but didn't check all the links and such.  I just thought “why
bother updating these if Gmane is down?” and then found out that it
was back up and that our notmuch-report wasn't using it.  This “Gmane
vs. Mail Archive notmuch-report config” sub-thread is just about that,
and not part of patch review.
