At some point the root CA for Let’s Encrypt will need to be added to “The List In The Browsers” so that people can get that warm fuzzy feeling that comes from a green padlock in their URL bar. As a Mozilla-sponsored project I expect the first target browser would be Firefox. I had a quick look over on Bugzilla for the preliminary discussion relating to adding this root CA and didn’t find anything.
My question: As a new kind of CA which is perhaps the first to be entirely gratis and automatic, has there been a discussion about whether this CA would be acceptable to add to the list of trusted CA embedded in browsers and operating systems? If this discussion is already going on, can someone provide a link?
