Duplicate entries in plugin directory feeds

Description

I'm subscribed to the RSS feed for new plugins in the plugin directory. Since introducing SSL on wordpress.org this feed is showing duplicate entries for each plugin, with each entry having a different GUID (one HTTP and one HTTPS).

More info here: https://github.com/feedbin/support/issues/431

Subscribe to the https feed instead, as everything is switching to that soon.

The GUID fields will have https in that feed, not http.

Although I'm subscribed to the HTTPS version of this feed, the issue has remained. Each item in this feed appears in my feed reader twice, once with an HTTP link and once with an HTTPS link.

At the bottom of the feed there's this comment: <!-- cached -->. This gives a clue suggesting that the feed might be cached and subsequently served with no regard to the protocol. If the feed was sometimes cached with HTTP links/guids and sometimes cached with HTTPS links/guids, then my feed reader would, over time, end up seeing two separate guids for each entry.

Agreed, this seems to sometimes have http links there as well. Should all go https when we force the issue though.

This issue affects wordpress.com in general too: #28247.

Anyone want to pass this on to the wordpress.com team?
