Officialize PPA


#1

There are an open issue of 2015,

but 5 days ago a link to a supposed “certbot team” (with no post in the issue discussion) shows a PPA!

  • it is secure, reliable… And will be officially updated?

  • why not closed the issue? … and why “nobody official” say something?

  • about instructions certbot.eff.org (eg. #ubuntuxenial-apache), need to change for the standard apt procedure reccomendation.


NOTES

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:certbot/certbot
sudo apt-get update

According to this post on Github, it was already around on Nov 9th 2016. :wink:

I just updated the GitHub issue you linked above, but to answer your questions:

it is secure, reliable… And will be officially updated?

Yes. It is maintained by two very experienced Debian developers working with the Certbot team.

why not closed the issue? … and why “nobody official” say something?

I wanted both Debian developers to sign off on the PPA before we started shouting about it. I got a +1 from the other developer this morning and closed the issue.

about instructions certbot.eff.org (eg. #ubuntuxenial-apache), need to change for the standard apt procedure reccomendation.

With the +1, I created https://github.com/certbot/website/issues/198 and I’ll make sure the Certbot website is updated soon.

Nice! I’ll keep that in mind for future questions about the PPA.
