Subject: [boost] [website] SSL certificate
From: admin_at_[hidden]

   I recently switched from Firefox to Chromium, and I've been having issues
   accessing [1] It seems that the SSL certificate used
   for [2] is either not properly configured, or not issued by one
   of the major SSL certificate providers (e.g. VeriSign, GoDaddy). Examination
   of the certificate indicates that it's issued by the Computer Science
   Department of Indiana University, and the certificate doesn't have a chain
   that leads back to a well known CA (the chain is just '[3] =>
   [4]', and most browsers I've tried don't recognize
   [5] as a legitimate CA by default).

   If this isn't just a matter of improper configuration (or, for that matter,
   just a matter of my browsers being screwy), I'd be happy to offer my own SSL
   certificate to Boost. The certificate is a standard SSL certificate issued
   by GoDaddy (domain controlled validation, certificate signing algorithm is
   RSA 2048 bits), and it's paid through 02/20/2011.

   I'm currently using my cert for my Debian mirror, so I would have to revoke
   the current certificate, and then submit a CSR from [6]'s server.
   Ideally, then I would generate a CSR request, and the boost server would
   sign it; I'd end up with a cert chain of 'mysite => [7] =>
   GoDaddy'. [8] and subdomains would have a cert signed directly by
   GoDaddy, so the [9] cert would be verify by most browsers

   If there's any interest in this, please let me know.
