I think that may have been due to the whatwg wiki having been switched over
to TLS-only recently, and I had not updated a script I wrote that generates
https://help.whatwg.org/extensions/meta-name/ to take the switch into account.

But I have now done that and everything should be back to normal. If not,
let me know.
