You don't have to tell me, I already know. It was intentionally not
implemented. And even with all that, we *do* have HTTPS through SSO on
src.fp.o. We just don't have it on pagure.io. Don't expect it to be
available with the move to GitLab. GitLab admins have a toggle they
can use to disable HTTPS pushing for policy reasons, and I will
strongly bet on it being flipped so that HTTPS pushing will not be
available in our GitLab.
