  1. The web site links usually point to http://dev.exiv2.org/ (not the https://)
  2. The web site certificate for dev.exiv2.org does not mention the hostname in its CommonName (or subjectAltName), and is self-signed, so is untrusted by browsers.

I'm assigning this to Andreas as he as the credentials for the web site. I don't think this is a serious matter. With Safari on MacOS-X, you can update the browser to always trust this certificate.
