This can happen especially if you do the certification with a
particular app then the boss gets HIS apps in as you said.

I agree this is a problem to look into but unfortunatly, you can't
expect to learn everything.

The point I was trying to make (maybe with a bad example) is that by
forcing any particular app to be used for the cert, even for something
as dominant as Apache or sendmail, you close the doors to those who
don't want or don't know how to use it. I think it should instead
focus on particular requirements or tasks.
