TL;RD; RDL looks non-free, Philipp Dunkel from CAcert says Debian is fine (to 
distribute) because of the disclaimer re the certificates included in ca-
certificates, Fedora says it is non-free.

What do the others think about it?

To me, it doesn't just seem to be a (re-)distribution issue. Rather, the 
need for an additional agreement with CAcert.
