> fetch/libfetch is used for downloads and my proposal here

Ditto, the last commit commit 76f106831361817c4f333e82e901bf60bf551351 is from
2018.

Except that here you have enough mirrors to keep only the HTTPS protocol and
not have any problem with "RANDOMIZE_MASTER_SITES". On the other hand it's
clean :)

At the very least, I think it would be nice to have a comment in
"Mk/bsd.sites.mk" like:

# Please, prefer HTTPS procotol, otherwise HTTP and finally FTP only if you
have no other mirror.
