Bug Description

As I understand, popularity-contest statistics are submitted via http
connections. What about an option or, even better, an automatic check
for the availability of gnutls and using https connections instead?

popcon.ubuntu.com now defaults to HTTPS, with default HTTPS for all GET functions. However, it appears popcon-upload would require a sizable rewrite to support HTTPS, as it currently does TCP communication by hand. Debian bug #880121 is the upstream bug for this, and looks like it is actively being discussed if/how to implement this.
