Indeed, I always wondered why the certificates had been put under
/usr/share/ssl and by whom. The FHS had been quite strict on this from
the very beginning.
/etc seems a rather sane place. Perhaps /etc/ssl/?
the first think what i used to do is
mv /usr/share/ssl/* /etc/ssl/
rm -rf /usr/share/ssl
ln -s /etc/ssl /usr/share/
these are the only configuration files which are not under /etc. why???
