I am just pondering about the design of the "Details of Registration Server" dialog, where the user is able to modify the registration server and to administer needed certificates and I have some questions about it:
* Do we want to do configuration of registration server via GUI at all?
* Is there more than one certificate issued by the registration server? From my talk with Jens Daniel I got the information, that there will be one registration server so I guess that it will issue one certificate, but you know how it is with guessing :-)
* Does acceptance of certificate mean that, a user action is required to accept/install it?
* How are "Do you want to accept this certificate?" pop ups handled, which are provided by a browser? Are they suppressed or if enabled would the user accept the certificate by clicking the pop up instead of a button in the webYaST GUI?
* Do we want to visualize import/export certificate in the GUI?
* Do we want to allow the user to delete a certificate or do we just display a certificate obtained by connecting to registration server?

I am asking all these questions to figure out, how important you want to rate these settings.
From a nice and simple perspective I would just enter registration credentials and then continue with next dialog.

What do you think about that?

Looking forward to your comments,
