I've never worked with a wildcard cert before and right now plain old
"fedoraproject.org" doesn't work.  This makes sense but I'm wondering if
anyone knows a way around it.  Is it not possible to create a cert for
your entire domain as you'll always have at least a *.example.com and a
root "example.com" cert?  correct me if I'm wrong on that.

You are correct.  You must have the *.domain CERT *and* the root
domain CERT.  No way around it.
