2019-11-14doc: use new HTTPS address at lists.gnu.org
lists.gnu.org is no longer accessible via FTP.
2016-12-27http -> https, and relocate homepage to https://80x24.org/dtas/
HTTPS allows some level of security(*) and we've actually supported it on 80x24.org for many months, now. So, point new readers to it. Moving away from hostname-based homepages will allow us to save on subjectAltName space (and bandwith) when negotiating an HTTPS connection. We'll also have an .onion mirror for Tor users, soon, too; in case we can't afford to pay ICANN in the future. (assuming TLS libraries don't have any more Heartblead-level bugs in them, CAs aren't compromised, MITM HTTPS stripping proxies don't get in your way, and your certificate bundle isn't compromised).
2016-01-18doc: convert to perlpod(1) from Markdown
perlpod(1) is already installed by default on Debian and RedHat-based systems; and probably most modern *nixes; pandoc(1) (and Haskell) are not. POD also more standardized than Markdown (which flavor? :P), especially for generating manpages. So save any potential documentation editors some disk space by not forcing them to install Haskell and pandoc. Finally, I'm a mildly proficient in Perl and do not know Haskell at all and have a better chance at reading/hacking the source if the document generator breaks.
