The plan is to add more documentation about including CAcert (which
hasn't expired to my knowledge).  I haven't gotten around to do that
yet, due to other pending issues, but maybe you could contribute it?

I'd also like a certificate for my Java applets, and also one for my
ms woe .exe installers which (like Firefox' or OpenOffice's) trigger a
bad-looking warning under recent versions/SPs of that OS.  If you can
buy that for each Savannah project that would be great.  I have to
warn you that the annual fee is subtantially higher though (like 50x).
