(http://www.cacert.org/index.php?id=3) will be a standard part of
openSUSE distro. A lot of people and companies

Since openSUSE 11.3 has been already released, I've changed the target
pruduct from 11.3 to distribution.
And, please explain how we can implement this feature in our
distribution, if you can.

Valid question. I'm not an expert in this matter, but let me try. The
root key can be retrieved from: http://www.cacert.org/index.php?id=3
And i think that it should be installed in: /etc/ssl/certs

+ From openSuSE11.1,we added a new package openssl-certs,which deliver
+ all certs departed from the original openssl package.And the left work
+ is to update this package if needed.(And,updating the package
+ dependency is needed, and I guess this should already been done.)
