They did a huge step forward, but AFAIK not yet done. By now we are
using CAcert and the certificate is not invalid only because your
browser doesn't know the CAcert root certificates¹. It's just untrusted.

However, the plan is, once the are real online we think about migration.

P.S. Sorry, if this might sounded root. Not sure. Wasn't intended. SSL
is not just the green lock symbol, it's more. Even an selfsigned
certifcate can, well in most cases it is if you check fingerprints, be
more trustworthy than a signed one.
