[Pkg-julia-devel] src:libgit2: Please support https:// protocol by linking to OpenSSL

Hi Josh,

Julia 0.5.0-rc1 has been released, and not much has happened towards
integrating mbedTLS into libgit2 as an alternative TLS backend [1].

What do you say if the Debian Julia team maintains a libgit2-openssl
variant until alternative TLS backends are available and have matured?
I would like to begin testing julia 0.5 in experimental so that the
package is ready in time for stretch.
