Re: ask for certificate annoyance

you are absolutely right, did not think of that.

can this be automatic too, i.e. svn client asks something like:
certificate currently not trusted:
  issued to: www.collab.net
  issued by: www.ch.collab.net
  valid from: 2003-03-01 valid to: 2004-02-28
install in .subversion-directory and do not ask again (y/n)?

and then copies the certificate by itself.
