Can we at least configure certmonger to passively track the

throw warning about impending expiration into logs?

+1, I have already suggested we do this several times.

Throw a warning where? Register an e-mail address as part of the

trick, and this has always tripped us up, is having an MTA configured.

I would start with logs, as I wrote in the original message. This will

user-configurable hooks.

"Logs" is not very specific, do you mean syslog/journal?

Feel free to open an RFE against certmonger with your proposal. I
