	Recently the FSF's application to Let's Encrypt's Limited Beta program was accepted. For
	those of you who have not been following, the project Let's Encrypt is a non-profit
	Certificate Authority (CA) run by the Internet Security Research Group (ISRG). The IRSG,
	founded in 2013, is comprised of board members from various places, including but not
	limited to: The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), and Mozilla. The main drive behind
	Let's Encrypt is to make the process of getting X.509 certificates for Transport Layer
	Security (TLS) encryption a trivial process, as well as cost-free. In addition, Let's
	Encrypt aims to make all this available using only Free as in Freedom software for both
	their server and client infrastructure.
👋 Pax et bonum.
