Hmm, must have been a transient outage... it works for me now.  If it
still doesn't work for you, maybe something blocking your port 443
access?  Can you reach https://muug.ca?

Hmm, I guess I do "contribute" to the kernel in a matter of
speaking :-)  I'm by no means a kernel hacker, nor do I submit patches
of my own.  I guess I'm now a "kernel debugger and tester" :-)  (I do
have my name/email in the git tree now!)

Same with Fedora: I've very active on Fedora bugzilla.  Basically when
I hit a bug that impacts me or all the servers I admin, I do all the
work to try to isolate the bug and help the actual code authors come to
a speedy fix.  I find you get better responsiveness (and faster errata
released) that way.  Instead of saying a nebulous "it crashes
sometimes", you say "it crashes but only after XYZABC code commit".
