Well, a verified cert is a lot better thean a self-signed; also in our case 
its more a nice-to-have.

Did you create a wildcard certificate for archlinux.org and *.archlinux.org? 
Only you can create a new cert or renew the current one. (I could generate a 
key pair though)

Maybe we can use such a cert for other things in future. (smtp, optional 
https, package/code signing etc.)
