Description Christoph Probst 2005-05-22 02:05:04 UTC
Now as some other Linux distributions like Debian, Ubuntu and Knoppix are about
to include the CAcert root cert (or already did it) I wonder why I hear nothing
about Gentoo and CAcert ...

You find a lot of discussion about that topic by looking at the following links.
I for myself would appreciate the inclusion into Firefox, KDE/Konqueror/Kmail,
Opera, and so on - and I'm sure many other people would like it as well.

The CAcert Website

"The battle for inclusion heats up"

CACert cert will be included into Debian Linux:

CACert has been included into Knoppix Linux 3.7 (Konqueror and Firefox)

First talks about CACert and Ubuntu

Never ending story:


Reproducible: Always

probably because no one has contacted us

added app-misc/ca-certificates-20050518 which just grabs the deb source and
unpacks it
