Package: debian-edu-config
Version: 2.10.65+deb10u2
Severity: important

The method used for rootCA certificate integration for firefox-esr (>= 
68.2.0esr) is deprecated. Instead of touching each user's home 
directory, nowadays the use of a policies file is the recommended way to 
go. This has the benefit that it will be valid for thunderbird (>= 
68.2.1, atm in unstable) as well.

The policy file should be shipped as 
share/firefox-esr/distribution/policies.json and should have this content:

  "policies": {
    "Certificates": {
      "ImportEnterpriseRoots": true,
      "Install": [
    "NewTabPage": false,
    "OverrideFirstRunPage": ""

This makes sure that the Debian-Edu_rootCA.crt file gets installed as 
trusted certificate for firefox-esr and thunderbird. It also forces the 
Debian Edu startpage to be shown prominently like before (instead of the 
Firefox one) at first launch; the Firefox privacy page is available via 
a second tab (i.e. the both tabs are switched).

In addition, no longer needed files should be removed 
and these related tools should be adjusted

   [ Wolfgang Schweer ]
   * share/debian-edu-config/tools/kerberos-kdc-init:
     - Update kdc.conf content from template shipped with the krb5-kdc package.
       This fixes the recently broken Kerberos setup.
   * Replace workaround for rootCA certificate integration (both firefox-esr and
     thunderbird 68.2.x) with a nowadays recommended setup: (Closes: #944450)
     - Add policy file share/firefox-esr/distribution/policies.json.
       This makes sure that the Debian-Edu_rootCA.crt file gets installed as
       trusted certificate for firefox-esr and thunderbird.
       The policy also forces the Debian Edu startpage to be shown (instead of
       the Firefox one) at first launch; the Firefox privacy page is available
       via a second tab.
     - Drop share/debian-edu-config/{installs.ini,profiles.ini,profiles.ini.ff}.
       These files are no longer required.
     - Adjust related tools:
       + share/debian-edu-config/tools/gosa-create
       + share/debian-edu-config/tools/create-user-nssdb
       + share/debian-edu-config/tools/update-cert-dbs
       + ldap-tools/ldap-debian-edu-install
     - Adjust Makefile.
   * Drop workaround now that Squid bug #911325 has been fixed:
     - Remove share/debian-edu-config/squid.resolvconf
     - Adjust Makefile and cf3/cf.workarounds.
