I'm forwarding a mail received on the users list about certificate usage on Studio.
Apache Directory Studio jars (including plugins and features) are all signed using the keytool command during the build of a release.
This certificate allows Eclipse to verify the validity of the software during the installation with the update site.
Until now, we were using a self-signed certificate which, as it is self-signed, only lasts 6 months.
As you can see on the mail below, this situation is causing some issue.
Stefan suggested me on IM that for the next releases we could request an ASF-signed certificate from infra.
I think it's a good idea.
Does anyone know if infra can provide us such a certificate ?

I'm neither a certificate expert, but I did the signing of the jars and the certificate is on my machine.
I exported the public key at this location for you:http://people.apache.org/~pamarcelot/studio.cer
I hope it worked...
