True.
We recently also talked about creating a utility function that wraps
all github URLs, and use https iso http.
See http://lists.busybox.net/pipermail/buildroot/2013-November/081714.html
and http://lists.busybox.net/pipermail/buildroot/2013-November/081823.html

If anyone is interested in implementing this, please do.

Best regards,
Thomas
