Thanks Jo,

It looks like it does the same job as mozroots, but pulls from the concatenated file instead of downloading from mozilla.  That file should be available on most (if not all) linuxes, but ... Any plans to support OSX?  And/or mobile devices?

If the presence of root certs is not automated on *all* platforms running mono, then the application developer is still required to programatically run mozroots anyway.

Automating the process into the installation package is a really nice improvement.  Even if cert-sync won't work on OSX due to having no concatenated file available, can mozroots be automated into the OSX mono installer?
