Description

CACert is a "community-driven certificate authority that issues free public key certificates to the public" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cacert).

The root certificate of CACert (http://www.cacert.org/index.php?id=3) is used by many sites in the FLOSS community and is included in many GNU/Linux distributions (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cacert#Inclusion_status).

CACert is not included in the TBB.

It would be usefull to included this CA in the TBB, too.

#8515 was a duplicate of this issue. There is an extension posted there which adds CACert, but that is obviously not an ideal way to do it.

Is it non-trivial to add a cert to the root cert store in TBB? (I guess it must be, since that extension was written.)
