Comment (by TimothyBlynJacobs):

 Looking at the description of #53024 I'm confused as to what docs we are
 trying to create. The only warnings we generate now are if the site URL or
 home URL are not set to `https`. The false positives will no longer occur,
 because we don't run those tests at all.

 So what would this documentation concretely be? The way to resolve the
 issue is to enable HTTPS for your site, which is a host-specific process.

 If we disagree about whether a site not using `https` is a critical issue,
 like in comment:47, ok. But it seems like we are closing this because of a
 lack of documentation about the issue we've fixed in this ticket?
