The directives listed in the robots.txt file apply only to the host, protocol and port number where the file is hosted.
That makes it sound as if they expect separate robots.txt files for http and https, even if they belong to the same domain. But what are you supposed to do, rewrite to different robots.txt files depending on the robot's protocol? You might be able to do this on a brand-new site: Here are the rules for http, here are the ones for https. You can't really change at this point, though.
Not sure if I get this, I entered my domain both with http and https and got the robots.txt file for both, so doesn´t google see the robots.txt file equal for both http and https?
