open-uri raises an exception if a http/s redirect refers to https.


original mail to the maintainer with a quickfix: https://gist.github.com/1704932

--snip--
# this is taken from the original ruby open-uri class,
# fixed this to support secure socket http redirects:
def OpenURI.redirectable?(uri1, uri2) # :nodoc:
    # This test is intended to forbid a redirection from http://... to
    # file:///etc/passwd.
    # However this is ad hoc.  It should be extensible/configurable.
    uri1.scheme.downcase == uri2.scheme.downcase ||
    (/\A(?:http|ftp|https)\z/i =~ uri1.scheme && /\A(?:http|ftp|https)\z/i =~
uri2.scheme)
end
