Summary:New SSL certificate for ocamlcore.org
Project:Site Admin

The OCamlCore.org team was pondering if we should use a commercial certificate to replace the free CACert.org certificate. While we acknowledge that CACert is a very important initiative, we decided to change the certificate.

This way, OCaml Forge user should not need to add exceptions or trust the CACert root certificate. Access to the forge should be easier.

The SSL certificate is now issued by Equifax. If you have problem loading https://forge.ocamlcore.org, contact the administration team (through our bug tracker http://forge.ocamlcore.org/tracker/?group_id=1).

NB: we use a wildcard certificate for *.ocamlcore.org, this doesn't cover lists.forge.ocamlcore.org -- which was already the case for CACert. For now, we recommend to add an exception when accessing https://lists.forge.ocamlcore.org.
