Yes, dbix-class no longer queries the db for column_info, by default.
I believe the reason for this is they expect the user to put the data
type into the dbic schema declarations.
I personally have put stuff like type:varchar, length:255 in my dbic
schemas, so that should be enough to generate basic constraints from.

The httpS address is only for people with username/passwords -
otherwise it's http.
Anyway, I've added you as a project member, so the https address
should work fine for you now.
Your username is your gmail address.
