Board Members, List Members, all -
Today I asked Yuvi Panda, lead dev at Wikimedia Labs, a
participatory collection of open infrastructure and FOSS supporters,
what they are using for their certificate ecosystem. Here is the reply:
we just use globalsign, which isn't ideal but oh well.
we're waiting for lets-encrypt, and that's hopefully possible next month
lets-encrypt is from mozilla and eff and probably saner ( ed.
..than the FSF idea )
regarding the Free Software Foundation as an upstream Certificate Authority:
FSF isn't a CA and I don't think they have any intention of being one
