oops, sorry, the correct links are:

- RSS: https://amnesia.boum.org/torrents/rss/index.rss
- Atom: https://amnesia.boum.org/torrents/rss/index.atom

Well, this would be great, but I don't know any way of pushing new
.torrent files to seeds we don't manage ourselves; we need to research
this, as solutions probably exist already. Any idea?

Ack, we will try to fix this.

Agreed, this is truly annoying.

The certificate is actually valid: it has the *.boum.org wildcard
listed in "Subject Alternative Name". Many clients, such as wget,
don't understand such valid, though uncommon, certificates. I'll ask
the webhost sysadmins to get a new certificate with amnesia.boum.org
explicitly listed as a SubjAltName.

Thanks a lot for this useful feedback that will help us making it
easier for people to help.
