If you were to contribute a paid-for wildcard SSL certificate the
warning would of course go away. That's what you get for using free
self-signed certificates.

I see it from the ticket history that Slava accepted it at some point,
but probably it was postponed until later and he never got back to it. 

If I were you, I would just post reminders from time to time, which
always worked well for me. I'm sure it is not bad will...

I think it's not a process problem (anymore), but simply a workforce and
communication problem. The core team is as small as 3 persons working on
mc in their spare time plus a number of less frequent contributors.

The core team is focused on architectural improvements and most urgent
bugs, tickets come next... Worse even it's substantially harder for most
of them to communicate in English, so tickets that require a lot of
communication naturally get put off till later.

I used to help with that in the past, but now I really can't make any
more time for that, and some will even argue that I wasn't any good at
it anyways.

Sincerely yours,
Yury V. Zaytsev
