Subject [jira] [Commented] (SERF-184) Serf has an expiry date
Date Sat, 19 May 2018 12:40:00 GMT


Branko ─îibej commented on SERF-184:

I don't think we should do anything about this.
# Software archeologists can fudge their system date themselves.
# Source-based distributions can easily regenerate the certificates (the script for that is
included in the source tree).
# {{datefudge}} is tragically platform-specific.

>            Priority: Minor
> Expiring certificates makes it difficult to build older versions of Serf without manual
intervention. This is a big problem for source-based distributions and software archaeologists.
> GnuTLS uses [datefudge|] to fake the system
time so the package is reproducible forever.
