No probem, I can live with that. It's clear this way.

Also, the changes are only stable for about a few weeks. Merging it 
earlier was not really an option.

I'll see if I can make a list with hotfixes. Which will be a pain to 
merge, as the code in which the fixes are done might even not exist anymore.

But I think we have to change http into https in a few places...
