Did you already agree with the security team (Cc'ed) that these should
also be published as DSA for stable and oldstable?
If yes, a security team member might be the best person to sponsor these
If they shouldn't be treated as DSA, the uploads for stable and
oldstable have to be done differently.
BTW: What is the next expiry date of any certificate in ca-certificates?
(Note: 20200601 has been uploaded to unstable by Andrew Shadura

Re: exipry dates:
Generally, expiry date has not been an issue remaining in the bundle
until removal upstream, since the certification authorities have managed
migration to new roots well and openssl>=1.1.1 handles this gracefully.
This appears to have not been the case with AddTrust and older
openssl<1.1.1 bug, as that fix was not backported, to the best of my
I would have to cycle through all the certs to see what dates are
upcoming, but this is a new(old-openssl) problem, apparently. I don't
have that bit of time at this very moment.
Re: security uploads:
I have received no reply from the security team, as of this message, so
awaiting their OK/advice. Copy of email sent to team@security, since

Hi Security Team,
I committed changes to to git for an RC security issue, as well as
update the certificate bundle to current. This has been critical for a
number of web services failing due to the expired certificate on older
operating systems. Evidently this has been fixed in openssl-1.1.1, but
I have prepared unstable, and stable/oldstable security updates on mentors.
master sha for unstable (ca-certificates_20200601):
b3a8980b · Fix typo on AddTrust CN
RC bug fixed:
Symantec roots explicitly blacklisted:
The master branch was merged to the debian-buster and debian-stretch
branches (control file kept) and releases created for buster-security
debian-buster sha (ca-certificates_20200601~deb10u1):
5256b350 · Set buster-security for suite
debian-stretch sha (ca-certificates_20200601~deb10u1):
7bd8f941 · Set stretch-security for suite
I uploaded all 3 to mentors and they are ready to be sponsored:

Please, let me know if I can provide any additional info.
