Parrot svn could use a trusted-root-signed-cert

15:45 <rjbs> Hi!  I was wondering whether it's on the agenda to get trusted-root-signed cert for Parrot svn.
15:46 <rjbs> I saw that recent Rakudo is installable, so I'm having a quick go at compiling it and the "trust this cert?" reminded me that I'd seen that error before.
15:46 <rjbs> Or here's an alternate take: does it answer over non-SSL http?  I wonder if --gen-parrot in rakudo's build could use that.
15:47 <moritz> there's an easy way to find out.
15:47 <pmichaud> afaik it doesn't answer over non-SSL http
15:47 <pmichaud> which is why Rakudo uses the https:
15:47 <moritz> it redirects to https://
15:48 <pmichaud> as far as plans to get a better cert... I haven't heard of any.  Might be worth filing a ticket or a message to parrot-dev
15:48 <pmichaud> it'd be a good idea, for exactly the reasons you cite
15:49 <rjbs> Ok.  Well, I just popped in to say, "that prompt made me make a prune face."
15:49 <pmichaud> me also.
15:49 <rjbs> I think you can get a signed cert pretty cheaply these days.   Maybe TParrotF wants to spring for one.
15:49 <rjbs> Ok, back to the realms of 5.  Ciao!
15:49 <pmichaud> thanks!
