Bug Description

The URL shown in the manpage was not updated in 1.5-1 (add https support. Closes: #799580, closes: #708206.)

When a user with an existing ~/.pastebinit.xml tries with a URL of http://paste.ubuntu.com or a user creates a config file per the manpage they will get the following error:

Unknown website, please post a bugreport to request this pastebin to be added (http://paste.ubuntu.com)

Here is a proposed patch for the manpage.

Hello Robert,

thank you for this report and the patch. My understanding is that the https-support isn't mandatory. So, it would be better be to fix the issue properly, I guess. Let's see what Stéphane will have to say. I suppose that we should do something in the just-released Xenial as well, so I've added an appropriate task.

The attachment "https_manpage_example.patch" seems to be a patch. If it isn't, please remove the "patch" flag from the attachment, remove the "patch" tag, and if you are a member of the ~ubuntu-reviewers, unsubscribe the team.
