Update: I just found a little drawback of the workaround that I 
presented (entering uppercase "HTTPS" in the "Repository Viewer URL" 
field). It breaks the link of the "Repository" menu item, in the Project 
menu, at http://trunk.cdash.org/?project=SuperElastix

After my workaround, the "Repository" menu item links to:


That's clearly wrong. But I feel it's more important to have correct 
links to pull requests.

You're welcome, Zack  :-)  I guess there must have been a reason to do 
stripHTTP, that I just don't know... So far, I only saw one side effect 
of entering uppercase "HTTPS" in the "Repository Viewer URL" field. When 
I entered the URL, a text appeared next to "Test URL:", saying:


That doesn't look good: "http://HTTPS://github.com/...". But does it do 
any harm, if it's just the "Test URL"?

By the way, on the first Settings tab page ("Information"), the "Home 
URL" is also stripped. I don't know whether this is either buggy or
