Detailed Description

The Let's Encrypt client is now packaged in Fedora. This will allow Fedora users to easily install the Let's Encrypt client (letsencrypt) and generate free SSL certificates for their websites (or other services which use SSL)

Benefit to Fedora

Having the Let's Encrypt client in Fedora is in keeping with the foundations of Features and First. I believe we are the only distro that has the Let's Encrypt client in our base distro currently. This is making it easy for people to use Fedora to get certificates from Let's Encrypt without having to install the client manually.
