I find it a tiny bit ridiculous that there isn't a page on StartCom. It's a issuer of free SSL certificates recognized by Microsoft since the sept 2009 update of root CA's and Windows 7 yet there isn't a Wikipedia page of it? Besides, it has a Linux distribution which Wikipedia doesn't cover. Wikipedia has a page on every tiny little fork of every Linux distribution! I think I'll recreate this, as the main reasons for deletion were Spam an no notability. The first part is a solvable problem, the second seems to have improved a lot over the years (e.g. Microsofts inclusion of approved CA's) --Dtech (talk) 13:19, 27 March 2010 (UTC)

I left you a message on WP:RFF. You might look at the history of DWM (the linux window manager) for some insight into WP:N relative to software projects. --Nuujinn (talk) 22:26, 27 March 2010 (UTC)
Limitations[edit]

It's unclear what can happen after the one year is up on the free Class 1 certificate. Can it be renewed for free for another year? Can a second free one be obtained to continue from the first? Or is the only option to start paying, e.g. for a class 2? Also, the "one A per B" and "one B per A" items can probably be combined and better worded. -- Ralph Corderoy (talk) 23:25, 1 December 2012 (UTC)
