I've redacted Greg's email address, because I'm not sure how he feels
about it being public (I've Bcc'd him).

Thanks for the offer!
The plan, to my knowledge, is to get a free cert from Let's Encrypt
when they launch general availability next month.
However, looking at GlobalSign's offering to OSS projects, they
require you to get an "A" from the SSL Labs checker; so I decided to
take a look. Ignoring that it doesn't like CA Cert, parabola.nu
still only gets a "C". So we should look in to that (@fauno?).
