When trying to connect to bugs.gentoo.org , I am getting a "Error code: sec_error_untrusted_issuer"

Been like this for a couple of days, different machines from different locations.

b.g.o seems to use a http://www.cacert.org rooted certificate, and if you don't have that certificate or any other in the chain installed in your browser as a CA, it will report as an untrusted certificate. CAcert is not a default install certificate like others from verisign, etc. CAcert sometimes can't be trusted if you trust the vouch scheme on how certificate based authentication works, at least people aren't willing to vouch for someone if they aren't paid to check out their details... and those who do, don't care way too much as it didn't cost anything to rubberstamp...

At least money seems to buy influence in this sad world...
