[Haskell-cafe] Problems with cabal and stackage

Overnight there seems to have been a change to stackage where it's now
issuing redirects from http to https URLs:

~$ cabal update
Downloading the latest package list from stackage-lts-2.22
Warning: http error: Unable to handle redirect, unsupported scheme:
cabal: Failed to download
http://www.stackage.org/snapshot/lts-2.22/00-index.tar.gz : ErrorMisc "Error
HTTP code: 301"

My cabal doesn't seem to like https and I think it's a recentish version:

$ cabal --version
cabal-install version
using version of the Cabal library

I'm probably using a bit of an old workflow (and I know that LTS-2 is
pretty old too) but is there any simple way of getting this working again?
