There's no reason not to do this anymore, because debathena.mit.edu has as Real Cert, signed by a Real CA. Unfortunately, we need to switch our instructions to download it from wget to curl, because older wget can't do SNI.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

Raring and later have a sufficiently useful wget, so I just went ahead and did this. There's also a sha256sum for people with ancient wget(1). curl(1) is not useful, as curl is not installed by default.

When the installed is updated from beta to production, people should now use "make installer" in /mit/debathena/web_scripts.
