Hi Dennis and everybody,

somewhat related to this, I would like to know if there is a package that could
host Amazon's EC2 public certificate ?  In Ubuntu it is added to the euca2ools
package, because a program of this package can use it, but it is not part of
the upstream source (which is not Amazon), so I really would prefer to ship
the certificate somewhere else.

I proposed ca-certificates earlier, but the result was inconclusive.


Would there be a volunteer to maintain new package from scratch if needed ?
