[Osiris-devel]storing root certificates

I have a question regarding osiris management applications ( CLI, or
GUI ) and how/where they store the root cert used to authenticate
communications to the management host. The default is
/usr/local/osiris, but that doesn't work well in the case where the user
doesn't have the ability or want to create that directory.
Other solutions include storing the root cert in the current directory,
the user's home directory, or creating a ".osiris" directory in user's
$HOME and putting the cert in there. I like the latter the best for
reasons of convention, and safety. The problem, though, is that when
multiple users make use of the application it makes more sense to have
it in a single location rather than in home directories.
It's a small problem, I know.
