osad.conf file need to loose an "s" either for "proto =" or "server_url ="

Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
sorry I submitted to quickly..
I noticed upon adding the osad package
there was a an extra "s" killing the configmanagment and osad communication with the server
proto = https
sever_url = %(proto)s://
if not manually edited
this will be read as httpss://
once edited communication works fine.
Either drop the "s" from https in the protocol entry
or drop it lower in the server_url = entry..
I'm sure the config file in its default form, i.e. with the directive
server_url = %(proto)s://%(server_name)s%(server_handler)s
is all right.
doesn't mean that the proto directive will be expanded and the letter 's'
will be added afterwards. It means that the proto directive will be expanded
*as a string* period. No 's' added.
But to be actually able to make use of the server_url directive in osad.conf,
you need to manually add / define the server_name directive, otherwise
server_url won't be fully expanded and in the end will default to the server
you had specified in /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date.
I'm closing this with notabug, since there's nothing to fix here.
