HTTPS warning on developer.r-project.org

Paul Menzel-2
[Please CC me on replies, as I am not subscribed.]

Dear R folks,


Accessing the *R Developer Page* [1], the browser (Firefox) shows an
HTTPS warning.

The reason is the embedded Google logo.

Could you change that to an HTTPS link please?

```
$ curl -I https://www.google.com/logos/Logo_40wht.gif
HTTP/2 200
accept-ranges: bytes
content-type: image/gif
content-length: 3845
date: Wed, 22 May 2019 05:07:35 GMT
expires: Wed, 22 May 2019 05:07:35 GMT
cache-control: private, max-age=31536000
last-modified: Thu, 08 Dec 2016 01:00:57 GMT
x-content-type-options: nosniff
server: sffe
x-xss-protection: 0
alt-svc: quic=":443"; ma=2592000; v="46,44,43,39"

```


Kind regards,

Paul

More to the point: the custom search function is currently broken anyway - it just gives me 404.

Should we just get rid of it? If people want to use Google they can just say

site:developer.r-project.org foo
