could you elobarate a bit what exactly you mean by "invalid"?
This is a wildcard certificate for *.geany.org and is valid until April
Your browser might try to trick you into the assumption the certificate
is invalid because your browser does not trust the CA of cacert.org who
signed our certificate. But this does not mean our certificate is
invalid. It's just that the major browser distributors don't accept the
root certificates of cacert.org.

not yet trusted by the majority of applications. Those new,
automatically trusted certificates will first be available some time in
