This bug has been ignored for more than a week.

Is there anything I can do to speed it up? May I help you?

The SSL certificate of has the CN (common name) entry:


instead of:

Thus, any SSL capable browser always warns because of the mismatch between the shown site ( and the CN of the SSL certificate (Gna!). It is therefore impossible to make the browser quiet and to get warnings only when the certificate suddenly changed.

This is not only very annoying to us, the users. It also voids the certificate's protection against MITM attacks.

For security reasons, I strongly recomment to fix the certificate as soon as possible!
