https issues with github pages

See https://github.com/matplotlib/matplotlib/issues/8302

The https version of urls has started to appear in google search results.
I have reached out to github support to see if there is anything they can
do to ameliorate this.

I personally know very little about how all of this works under the hood,
is there anyone on here who does and will volunteer to take point on
resolving this?

Heard back from github and they pointed us at:

https://blog.cloudflare.com/secure-and-fast-github-pages-with-cloudflare/

Any volunteers to take this on? I suspect we will have to loop numfocus in
as well as they hold the matplotlib.org domain name.

I have set up a CloudFlare front for another organization's GitHub
pages, and did not find it difficult at all with all the instructions
available online. I suspect that the hardest thing will be the
management of credentials. Whoever does this will need access to the
domain registrar to change the DNS records, and to our CloudFlare
account (we'll need to set one up). *Then* these credentials need to be
stored so that if there is some problem later and the person who does
this now is not around to help, someone else can help. Also, when pages
are changed on the site, it's useful to be able to invalidate CloudFlare
caches.

I'm willing to help, but I don't know where to store the passwords or
who to talk to about the domain registrar. Do we have something in place
for the credentials of existing accounts, such as the GitHub matplotlib
account, our Twitter handle, etc?

Currently the shared credentials we have are in my lastpass vault and I
share on request. Is there a better way to deal with this?

I have followed up on this in private email with Jouni and NF (who holds
the domain name).
