Cannot clone METADATA.jl with Julia v0.5 on Linux #9264
I am trying to build my package with TravisCI for the first time in many months, and am no longer able to do so on Julia v0.5. If I go to builds that previously passed and try to build them, I get this error:
An example of this error can be found here.
I do not get this error in v0.6 linux, or on v0.5 mac.
This is because GitHub recently updated their HTTPS ciphersuite to only support TLS 1.1+. See this discourse page for more details. The long and the short of it is; we don't have any plans to release a new version of 0.5 that has an updated libgit2 that would support these newer TLS protocols, so the official advice is to upgrade to Julia 0.6+.
