-Summary: X509Extensions... can't use them for building a certificate
+Summary: many X509Extension derived classes cannot be encoded
 I just discovered more problems with the extensions and 
 I have to add SubjectKeyIdentifierExtension and 
 AuthorityKeyIdentifierExtension, but the properties for >>writing<< the 
 keyId is either missing or read-only.
 I also have to add a CertificatePoliciesExtension. I haven't looked at it 
 yet, but I suspect that I will run into the same problems here.
+------- Additional Comments From sebastien at ximian.com  2006-01-04 11:52 -------
+Right now only the extensions required for Mono's makecert tool have
+encoding capabilities. 
+This means that:
+* AuthorityKeyIdentifierExtension;
+* CertificatePoliciesExtension;
+* CRLDistributionPointsExtension;
+* KeyAttributeExtension;
+* NetscapeCertTypeExtension;
+* PrivateKeyUsagePeriodExtension;
+* SubjectAltNameExtension; and
+* SubjectKeyIdentifierExtension
+only implement decoding [*],
+* BasicConstaintsExtension;
+* ExtendedKeyUsageExtension; and
+* KeyUsageExtension
+implements both decoding and encoding.
+[*] Also note that some extensions are only *partially* decoded.
+Some of them will (probably) be updated when I complete Pkcs* in
+System.Security.dll for 2.0 support - or if they are required
+elsewhere in Mono. Contributions are welcomed!
