[Wikimedia-l] What is the wikipedia http API address now?

Yuri
Now all previously http URLs redirect to https.
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/API:Main_page also still mentions the old
http address that now redirects.

What is the new purely http API address?

I need to know the hit of https on various processes.

Yuri

I don't think there is one.

Rich Farmbrough
All on-wiki discussion agrees that the http service has been
unceremoniously dumped.  Various reasons are given: HSTS won't allow you to
access it (not quite true) and that it would allow SSL Stripping attacks
(almost totally false).
