+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #614532 +++

Created attachment 431849 [details]
0001-Add-support-for-PKCS-8-encoded-private-keys.patch

These are PEM files which in ASCII begin with the header

BEGIN PRIVATE KEY

The code already supports PKCS#1 format BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY but the openssl req -x509 tool creates private keys with the BEGIN PRIVATE KEY format.

There is a second patch attached - with mock, nss did not build because SEC_SkipTemplate is defined more than once.  Not sure why we don't see this problem with the regular builds, so I don't know if it is needed, but I've attached it anyway.

patch for spec file

I don't know if you want these patches applied to current Fedora versions - the git patch flies should apply cleanly, don't know about the spec file patch.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 14 development cycle.
Changing version to '14'.

These two patches have been accepted upstream.

My bad, I discovered that the nss-pem tar ball uploaded to the look-aside cache has the same contents as the one it was intended to replace. Rather than making and uploading a new tar ball I'll just apply the patches via the spec file. New builds are coming, with Rawhide first.
