Description

From a user:
"We, in Iran, can't browse *http*:torproject.org as the access to the site is denied by our government. But we can use the *https* version. Unfortunately, the *https* version of the deb repositories is redirected to the main page of the website and so we can't download the packages here in Iran. Would you please make the repository accessible through https?"

deb.torproject.org is a rotation of servers for mirroring purposes. We don't control all of them, therefore putting a cert on them isn't a good idea. There are other ways to get the repositories, like appending nyud.net to the domain. However, this won't stop keyword filtering from blocking the words "tor project".
