I claim that claim ;)

I think I was mistaken.

Our requests were being redirected from HTTP -> HTTPS, so I changed the
mirror URLs to use HTTPS, and then forgot I'd made that change. [0]

Between tests with `curl`, `guix download`, and `guix lint --checker
source`, I became confused and made that claim.

But, things started to work when I reverted the mirror URL change and
began updating the various package source URLs.

Hopefully SourceForge does not change the URLs again. That would be
extremely annoying.

[0] This redirection only seems to occur for "bad" URLs.
