Some package, such as auto-apt, fakeroot or so, were already created 
without pkg- prefix. A "pkg-" prefix is used only for comaintainance
for non native debian package?

I'm considering that I maintain ca-certificates on alitoh, can I use
"ca-certificates" for alioth project name, or should I use 
"pkg-ca-certificates" ?

Anyway, alioth.debian.org uses certificates issued by SPI
(C=US, ST=Indiana, L=Indianapolis, O=Software in the Public Interest,
 OU=hostmaster, CN=Certification Authority/emailAddress=hostmaster@spi-inc.org)
and SPI's certificates are not known, so browser complains about it.

I think that it is the SPI's certificates that ca-certificates should provide,
and I'd like to do it, but how can I get it?  Whom should I ask?
