Re: [Pulp-list] [katello-devel] Pulp Repo Auth configuration change



Yes since the same Apache that is used for Pulp is used for Katello
proxy and Katello is accessed by RHSM, we have to use Candlepin
certificate which is currently self-signed.

So I guess the change for us is to set this value (ssl_ca_certificate)
to the candlepin crt.
