Re: Getting certificates into KDE? (fwd)



Hejsa

Nedenstående afspejler en brevveksling jeg har haft med KDE folkene.

Før jeg opretter en request, mv, vil jeg godt lige have nogen andres 
(helst Jørns) bekræftigelse af, at vi taler om filen:

>>> http://www.kmd-ca.dk/KMD-CA-Server.crt <<<

OK? Hvis det kan bekræftes vil jeg bede KDE gutterne om at tilføje den til 
næste revision, og så kan vores PR afdeling iøvrigt godt gå igang...

are the best way to drive people off the internet thus making available
multi-mbs for the rest of us to download our porn.

Certificate matters are handled by sslug@sslug
I have asked him and here was his answer (sorry for the delay, he was
on holidays).

"If a root certificate is included in IE or Netscape, then we will most 
likely be willing to include it in Konqueror too.  Note that you can (as of 
3.0) import root certificates manually via the crypto config gui too.  
Anyhow, please file a wishlist in the bug tracking system (http://bugs.kde.org)
against kssl with all the needed information and I'll look at it asap."
