Description of the Change

Change HTTP link to HTTPS in docs/contributing-to-packages.md since the linked-to site supports SSL/TLS

Alternate Designs

The alternative would be leaving the link as HTTP. 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 link.

Applicable Issues

Similar to issue #16167 and PR #16173
