That’s the right thing to do of course, but leaves the users with an
unusable system in the mean time. Could the update description at
least generally point to how to work around this if the certificate
owner is not (sufficiently quickly) responsive? Mirek
Most software has options to override certificate errors.
I don't want to encourage how to do that, and covering all potential
applications would result in a big list.
I'd assume that people who are desparate will find the options on how to
override certificate errors and connect anyway.
