Description Kai Engert (:kaie) (inactive account) 2016-08-16 14:14:57 UTC
We'd like to fix bug 1367434 in RHEL 7.4 to avoid having to trust legacy CAs that have already been removed by the upstream Mozilla CA list maintainers.

In order to avoid regressions in applications that use glib-networking, a code enhancement is required, which has been implemented by upstream already.

Dan offered to help with the development work, which will require either a rebase to glib-networking 2.48, or to backport the relevant changes.
