haskell.org not sending intermediate certs

admin at h.o is the correct list though I expect all of us are on ghc-devs at h.o
also :)
I at least read admin with a far higher priority though.

We've gone and added the full chain for clients that don't self-acquire
them and also tightened up the allowed cipher list.
Please let us know if you encounter any further issues.
