today I learned the hard way, that cryptography on linux is kind of a mess. I
installed certificates in /usr/local/share/ca-certificates as described in the
README of ca-certificates. - And then I thought that icedove and KMail and the
rest of the world would just use the certificates... :-)
I've opened http://wiki.debian.org/Cryptography because there doesn't seem to
be much of cryptography info on the Debian wiki. Maybe the README in ca-
certificates should point out that matters aren't as easy as suggested.
