CAcert should be added to Replicant
This isn't strictly-speaking a bug, but some of the Replicant default bookmarks are to the HTTPS version of the Replicant site itself, which uses a CAcert-issued certificate, though the CAcert root certificates are not installed in Replicant by default. Both to prevent these bookmarked pages from throwing errors and to support community-driven certificates, it would be nice to see the CAcert added to the list of Replicant default certificates.

That seems reasonable, but I'm going to have to do this the right way. I think the best way for me to establish a chain of trust would be to meet with trusted CaCert members at FOSDEM to verify the certificate. In the meantime, I suppose I could still include it and let people report if there is a mismatch.
Note that this would have been a better fit for the forums or the mailing list, as this is not really a bug.

- Status changed from New to Closed
- Resolution set to fixed
This was included in our repositories and will be part of the next batch of images: https://gitorious.org/replicant/libcore/commit/b32087cc78dfd13aac9e6476266cf211b179af2f
However, it still shows replicant.us as untrusted, while other websites using CaCert work normally. I will raise the issue with them next time.
