Comment 98 for bug 741528

Testing is tricky.

Do you want to test the blacklist mechanism?

The test cert on will expire soon. I'm not sure what will happen then. You might get EITHER error expired OR error revoked. Only if the error REVOKED then you can continue to use this blacklist test. If EXPIRED has higher precendece and is the error that will be reported, this test ability will be gone. You must test this probably around April 20.

If you want to test revocation mechanisms in general, that's another story, and I agree, that could be automated, but it would also require to have someone permanently operate a server with a revoked cert.
