Description of problem:

We have a config option to set the X.509 server cert chain verify
depth to 3.

It was made configurable to address https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=649374
because it was explicitly set to '1' before that.

Why 3? (aside from 'thats what the current subscription.rhn.redhat.com cert needs to
get to redhat-uep.pem').

The openssl default seems to be 100 (https://www.openssl.org/docs/manmaster/ssl/SSL_CTX_set_verify.html)

My vote would be to let it fall to the openssl default by not explicitly setting it.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Pretty much all GA versions. But at least as new as:
