Description Christopher Martin 2005-08-12 04:14:25 UTC
Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.4.2)
Installed from:    Debian testing/unstable Packages
OS:                Linux

A Debian user has requested that Konq/kssl honour root certificates found in /etc/ssl/certs, and not check with the user when they are used. Indeed, I can see how this would be quite handy for many sysadmins. Several other tools already look in /etc/ssl/certs, such as w3m and wget, so there is a precedent for this feature.

I don't agree.  If this is the case, we have to add all kinds of logic to support when new certificates appear (prompting the user, etc).  It's poor performance, and the certificates there might not even apply to KDE.  I suggest that if you want such a tool, you could create a shell script or other tool to import them in a one-time shot to KDE.  You can do this via DCOP.  From my point of view, not interested in implementing.  Sorry.
