(Long version; a shortened version is available further down in this thread.)
1-A) http://repo.or.cz is currently implementing an SSH certificate that'd be recognised by major browsers, with the current estimate according to the message on their frontpage being early October 2018, if I understand it correctly. In the meantime, some browsers won't be able to sync the list properly when using the HTTPS version of the https://repo.or.cz link. Therefore the example below has also added the HTTP link as the 3rd link, for the sake of their HTTPS transition period.
1-B) Notably (in a mostly positive way), it is possible to mirror almost any Git on http://repo.or.cz, without requiring any involvement from the original repo's owner. To avoid potential moral concerns, I've chosen to only do that with my own lists. But it could also mean that http://repo.or.cz could become a convenient backup place for some of the smaller lists among the default ones, should you or anyone else with ties to uBO choose to do so.
So therefore I suppose that the HTTP version of that list's contentURL would have to be re-added, though as a secondary link this time, so that it becomes
Since the existing lists didn't have a sufficiently broad nor specific coverage of Thai websites, I decided to pull some strings to bring together the two largest Thai list projects, into one list that had a broader coverage.
Since the pull was accepted, I hereby propose that EasyList Thailand (https://github.com/easylist-thailand/easylist-thailand/blob/master/subscription/easylist-thailand.txt) can be included in uBlock Origin to serve Thai users of uBO, and to further encourage the creation of adblocker lists around the world.
I am indeed beginning to see that the OP was quite heavily detailed, but I was of the belief that it was better to list all the contexts and circumstances to it, than to simply go "Add these links plz".
If gorhill is pressed on time, which I presume he is, I could distill OP to perhaps half-ish of its current size instead.
Note 1) The mirror's site is about to implement a broadly accepted SSH certificate in October. In the meantime only the HTTP link will work in most cases. I therefore suggest adding the HTTPS link as the 2nd contentURL link, and the HTTP link as the 3rd.
Note 2) It is also possible to create mirrors on repo.or.cz even without the input of the original repo's owner. I have however only done so for my own repo.
I will add EasyList Thailand.
I will not add the two others because

@gorhill I can confirm that repo.or.cz have now got their new HTTPS certificate up and running, which means that https://repo.or.cz/FilterMirrorRepo.git/blob_plain/refs/heads/master:/NorwegianList.txt should now work properly at last.
