This is the development repository for SSL Redirect. It is the most likely to contain the most recent code changes. It’s also the most likely to include minor bugs.
This is a more stable version of the Darkware git repository. It receives pushes from the same source, but the most recent versions are likely to see more testing.
Does the world really need another plugin to handle SSL redirections in WordPress. Maybe. In searching for something simple to handle HTTP-to-HTTPS migration for another site, I ran across a number of plugins that seemed to accomplish what I wanted. However, none of them seemed to miss the mark in one place or another.
While it did seem like a rather low-probability situation, the problem didn’t feel complex and there was no reason why the solution for this minor case wouldn’t be applicable to the much larger audience. A few hours of work later, I had something that covered most of what I wanted.
