lists.gnu.org appears to work fine with https, so I included it.

https://lists.gnu.org is flaky. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't work for me. When it doesn't work, it's because I use Firefox configured with security.tls.version.min set to 2, which means to use TLS 1.1 or later, and whatever lists.gnu.org clone I happen to contact is old-fashioned and supports TLS 1.0 at best. (mail.gnu.org is similar.) I don't observe this problem with other gnu.org URLs. I have tried to open a trouble ticket about this with the FSF sysadmins, but have received no response yet.

No big deal; I wouldn't change the URLs back to HTTP as I expect the matter will be fixed sooner or later.
