The One Repo demo supports HTTPS

Not a wildly exciting development, but an important one in these times: the One Repo demo, which was previously available under the HTTP protocol ( now also supports the secure variant HTTPS ( This means that your connection is strongly encrypted, and no-one can see what you’re searching for or finding.
