Hi all,

linuxlovers.at and 0nl1ne.at skipped the last test day, but now we're  
enforcing TLS too :)

The problem seems to be the combination of: on one side new/2014 CaCert
certificate and on the other side a server, which can't read the new
certificates signed with SHA-512.
Thats why 0nl1ne.at uses now a self-signed certificate, see for example
