Bug description:
  When I install a corporate CA trust root with update-ca-certificates,
  it doesn't seem to work everywhere. Various things like Firefox,
  Evolution, Chrome, etc. all fail to trust the newly-installed trusted
  CA.

  This ought to work, and does on other distributions. In p11-kit there
  is a module p11-kit-trust.so which can be used as a drop-in
  replacement for NSS's own libnssckbi.so trust root module, but which
  reads from the system's configured trust setup instead of the hard-
  coded version.

  This allows us to install the corporate CAs just once, and then file a
  bug against any package that *doesn't* then trust them.

  See https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/SharedSystemCertificates
  for some of the historical details from when this feature was first
  implemented, but this is all now supported upstream and not at all
  distribution-specific. There shouldn't be any significant work
  required; it's mostly just a case of configuring and building it to
  make use of this functionality. (With 'alternatives' to let you
  substitute p11-kit-trust.so for the original NSS libnssckbi.so, etc.)
