## Spotlight: Call for testing certbot snap (Let's Encrypt)

Configuring SSL certificates for webservers just got easier. Certbot is
a Let's Encrypt command-line client automating setup of SSL/TLS
certificates. Robie Basak from the Ubuntu Server team published a snap
package of certbot making it even easier to install certbot
dependencies. The certbot snap call for testing [1] shows just how easy
it is. Happy hosting!
