Description PeterJeremy 2005-11-24 07:00:07 UTC
	security/ca-roots provides a X.509 root certificate database.
	To quite CAcert's website (www.cacert.org):
	"CAcert.org is a community driven, Certificate Authority that issues
	 certificates to the public at large for free."
	CAcert's aim meshes well with FreeBSD's aims and that including
	CAcert's root certificates in FreeBSD would benefit both projects.

	CAcert has its root certificates included in Debian, Knoppix 3.8,
	Gentoo, MirBSD, CentOS 4 and the Nokia 770.  Negotiations are
	underway with Mozilla, Grml and Fedora.

	My only interest in CAcert.org is as a validated assurer.


Import CAcert.org's root certificates from
	(authenticating these certificates is left as an exercise for
	the reader :-)
How-To-Repeat: 	grep -y cacert /usr/ports/security/ca-roots/files/ca-root.crt
