contrib.syndication feed links break with https-urls

The current add_domain-method checks if the link URL starts with 'http://' so it breaks with URLs that start with 'https://'.

I searched for previous mentions about this bug but didn't find any tickets. Attached one-line patch changes the method so that it checks both http and https.

This patch drops feed links to HTTP, it does not cope with when the site is only served through HTTPS.

Surely it is better to either not add the http:// or be smarter and figure out what it is supposed to add (i.e. add https:// when required)?
