Any specific reason to only give CVE to epiphany if you want to start
giving CVEs for this kind of flaw?  IIRC, not long ago, no
WebKitGtk-based browser I tried verified server SSL certificates and
all connected without any complaint or indication that SSL certificate
was not verified.  None seemed to offer any configuration option to
enable certificate checking.  I guess there may be / was some
limitations on WebKitGtk side that can explain this.

I noticed midori now uses different address bar background color, which
seem to be similar to the epiphany fix described in the Debian bug.

Oh, now I see you're probably asking for CVE for post-deb#564690
behavior, not pre-deb#564690, right?
