            Bug ID: 256923
           Summary: textproc/py-sphinx: remove dependency to
                    security/ca_root_nss or make it configurable
           Product: Ports & Packages
           Version: Latest
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Some People
          Priority: ---
         Component: Individual Port(s)
          Assignee: ports-bugs_at_FreeBSD.org
          Reporter: michael.osipov_at_siemens.com

Depending on this port has a few issues:

* It is not clear why a documentation generation system depends on this port
* It pulls in the entire tree for Perl
* FreeBSD now has certctl(8) managed trust store which makes ca_root_nss
obsolete
* Pulling it causes this issue:

Consider removing this port or make it configurable because cert management is
a admin's task and not a port one's.
