[RN] retire /etc/ssl/certs as r/w for admins

Feature state

openSUSE Distribution


Since the introduction of update-ca-certificates in openSUSE 11.2
/etc/ssl/certs has been an automatically managed location for SSL
certificates. Adminstrators are no longer meant to put their own
files there but instead have update-ca-certificates install symlinks
to the actual files there.

Having scripts regularly mess with /etc is ugly. Therefore placing
individual symlinks in /etc/ssl/certs needs to be retired.
/etc/ssl/certs should point to a location in /var instead. This
could either be done with a symlink or with a bind mount.
