Subject Re: Press Release for 2.0.1

"In addition, the Certification Authority portlet lets you setup a 
Certification Authority, your own Public-Key Infrastructure, very easily 
and use server/client Digital Certificates for securing your applications."

doesn't read quite right ... how about this?:
"In addition, the Certification Authority portlet provides a user 
friendly interface to setup a Certification Authority, your own 
Public-Key Infrastructure, and use server/client Digital Certificates 
for securing your applications."
