Plugin installer beaks https URLs

From plugin installer search for plugin which has https link(s) in its readme.txt (e.g. AntiVirus). When you show details for such plugin, all https links will be broken - they will be prefixed by link to plugin's page in repository. I am not sure if API returns such links, or this prefix is added on WP side.

These link(s) are displayed correctly on plugin's page.

19665.2.diff doesn't prepend anything that starts with a protocol like string (e.g. mailto:, irc:, svn:) and ensures that the URL actually begins with said protocol rather than just appearing somewhere in it.

@duck_: mailto protocol does not use slashes - e.g. So your path should look for ":" after word only.

#4 @SergeyBiryukov

19665.3.patch uses wp_allowed_protocols() for additional validation.

In [20466]:

Recognise protocols other than "http" in _links_add_base(). Props SergeyBiryukov. Fixes #19665.

Previously "https" URLs used in plugin READMEs displayed by install_plugin_information() would have the plugin's extend URL prepended.
