Bug Description

The web is moving towards HTTPS by default. manpages.ubuntu.com is currently only available via HTTP.

This is important even for content-only-sites like this, because HTTPS protects integrity and therefore can prevent tampering with the content (e.g. by injecting ads not authorized by the site owner, which often happens in public wifi networks).

The main ubuntu webpage has recently enabled HTTPS, see also:
