I hope someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but... I believe that "soft-enabled" means that https was set as the protocol in the canonical URLs for uzwiki. So search engines should start linking to the https URLs, and non-relative links generated by MediaWiki on WMF wikis would link to https rather than http. And, eventually, the links that people post to other places would start to be more often https too. But a visitor may still go to the http URL if they want to. Bug 43466 seems relevant, and links to other discussion. "Hard-enabled", on the other hand, means that anyone fetching the http URL would be redirected to the corresponding https URL. If this were somehow done now, then people in China would not be able to read Wikipedia at all because the http links would just redirect to https and then China's firewall would block the https request. The blog post mentioned earlier in this thread hopes that that would make China back down and unblock https to Wikipedia. : https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=43466 : With an HTTP 301 redirect, most likely. _______________________________________________ Wikimedia-l mailing list Wikimediafirstname.lastname@example.org Unsubscribe: https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimedia-l
