in busybox 1.28.4-2
disable WGET_HTTPS

This is due to HTTPS not actually being S in this case. :p

This will be re-enabled as soon as busybox at a minimum warns users when
they're downloading https:// urls but not actually checking certificates.


This notice is in the newest source.

See wget.c ~ lines 720-723:

if (!(option_mask32 & WGET_OPT_NO_CHECK_CERT)) {
option_mask32 |= WGET_OPT_NO_CHECK_CERT;
bb_error_msg("note: TLS certificate validation not implemented");

I tried it a year ago when I first saw that patch. I'm not sure what it actually does, but what it definitely does *not* seem to do is print the warning in question. Try building busybox with reverted, it doesn't do anything useful.
