Our user certificates reach their first year this autumn and we
prepare for renewal of the certificates, which means we have old and
new certificates for some transit time in our Djigzo database. This
should be no problem for decrypting keys as all matching for a give
address will be tried i guess. For signing the documentation says "if
there are multiple certificates suitable for signing, the first
certificate found will be selected". Is it possible to alter this to
something like the certificate with the longest validity will be
selected? I guess this would better fit most cases.
It seems that there is a bug in Ubuntu 8.04. Ubuntu now seems to have
added the missing package ca-certificates-java but this results in the
removal of ANT and therefore Djigzo will be uninstalled because Djigzo
depends on ANT.
I will contact Ubuntu to report the problem and see whether I can find a
temporary fix until they fix it.
Again: DON'T dist-upgrade when using 8.04 (the Virtual Appliance is
