Tt depends on your OS and how you installed wget.  For example mac ports wget does not tie into the system certs (if I remember correctly) but version of curl provided does.  Something like that anyway.

I use wget to download release candidates for reviewing, but I get the

[I don't get the same error when using a browser.]

Although I can use the --no-check-certificate option, this is not ideal.

Is there a way to add the certificate such that wget can download from
r.a.o without reporting the error?
