CA bundle over HTTPS May 8 2014

Our CA extract service is very popular to download Mozilla's CA cert bundle in PEM format. Starting now, we also provide a proper HTTPS download link for users who want to be sure there's no foul play going on during the download.

The HTTPS download is provided via github so it will also provide an alternative hosting site for cases where one or the other has problems. Since there's a chicken-and-egg problem with TLS and CA certs, we still offer the same download URL as before over plain HTTP as well.

Thank you for flying curl.
