 make-ssl-cert is a simple debconf to openssl wrapper.
 It requires a source template (Ex: /usr/share/ssl-cert/ssleay.cnf)
 and it will place the new generated certificate in the specified
 output file.
+Invoked with "generate-default-snakeoil", it will generate
+/etc/ssl/certs/ssl-cert-snakeoil.pem and /etc/ssl/private/ssl-cert-snakeoil.key.
 A summary of options are included below.
