In an effort to better protect the Eclipse Marketplace users, we will begin to enforce the use of HTTPS for all contents linked by the Eclipse Marketplace on October 14th, 2022. The Eclipse Marketplace does not host the content of the provided solutions, it only provides links to them. We are actively working with owners of existing solutions with plain HTTP entries to fix them. Beginning December 15th, non-compliant solutions will be unpublished from the Eclipse Marketplace. You can follow this effort on the tracking issue for more details.
