I'm not a fan of automatic http to HTTPs redirects. It would break support for
some text-based clients or some simple scripts as an example. HSTS support makes
sure http to https links are changed on the client-side. Using a bookmark to the
https version of suckless then fixes it. But I'd like to hear more opinions about
this, it can be changed.

Absolute links (if needed) on the wiki page can be rewritten to the standard form,
for example: to // then it uses the
current protocol scheme to connect and it works for both http and https.
Ofcourse using relative paths are recommended.

An exception to this rule is if a page specifies:

git clone

then it should be:

git clone

Kind regards,
