The techblog.wikimedia.org certificate expires on 2015-02-26. The two solutions are:
- Purchase a new certificate - simple but requires we purchase and maintain it.
- Push techblog.w.o to cluster (where we have the wildcard) and then rewrite it to blog.wikimedia.org (hosted by automattic) - more initial overhead to add to redirects, but end result is one less certificate to manage.
After off-task discussions involving pricing and overhead of simply adding it to redirects, the redirects option was elected.
