 I'll explain the above file:
 The new wgetpaste default is to use gist via https.  Unfortunately,
 this requires user intervention to setup SSL certificates after
 installing security/mozilla-rootcerts.  At this point, wget stops
 complaining about invalid certificates.
 However, for some reason wgetpaste will still report an error for gist
 over https, but using the --verbose option shows that a paste was
 actually done.  Going at that URL however shows a JSON blob, with part
 of what was intended to be sent in one of the fields.
 I have not investigated this further, but I suspect it could be due to a
 difference in our regex library or in sed, with the gist engine not
 being written portably, or due to a recent change in the gist site API.
 But this does not matter if using another default (in this case bpaste,
 which is also the default configuration provided on gentoo, according
 to the users who requested this package in pkgsrc).
