Description of the Change

Change HTTP links to HTTPS in CONTRIBUTING.md since the linked-to sites support SSL/TLS

Alternate Designs

The alternative would be leaving the links as HTTP ones. This leaves users less secure while having only marginal user experience benefits.

Why Should This Be In Core?

The documentation changed is in Core.

Benefits

Makes user interaction more secure by default.

Possible Drawbacks

Marginal potential for devices not supporting SSL/TLS and marginal performance hits when accessing the links.

Applicable Issues

Similar to issue #16167 and PR #16173
