[LON-CAPA-admin] https for loncapa

I am planning on implementing secure transactions for all the fsu 
loncapa servers using a wildcard server certificate 
(*.loncapa.fsu.edu) but unfortunately the servers have canonical name 
loncapax.fsu.edu where x is a number except for the balancer 
(loncapa.fsu.edu). So for the certificate to work, I need to rename 
the server to something like s1.loncapa.fsu.edu (alias) for 
loncapa1.fsu.edu (canonical name) etc. Is anyone using wildcard 
server certificate for your loncapa servers using an alias name? 
After some fiddling around I managed to get one server to work but 
has not check the affect if the balancer transfers the session to 
that server. Also, a few months ago, I noticed a number of cvs 
commits checking if https is on but I did not see an mention of this 
in version 2.8.0. Any idea when https will become available?
