Hmmm, not really, to be honest 😉
It is true that it has been awarded. But it didn’t won the Oscar, not even the „Goldene Kamera“.
CAcert4München was amongst the awarded proposals for the Munich Open Government Day (MOGDy) .
And the award can be viewed at the bottom of this page.
What is the proposal about ?
Well, in a nutshell it suggests that the Munich Government uses CAcert for client and server certificates needed. And they might include CAcert’s root certificates into their own Linux distribution called LiMux.
Note that one can vote for the proposal still. The more people support the proposal the more important it looks to the people running the MOGDy campaign.

Of course MOGDy is targeted (but not restricted) to people living in Munich.
So please support the proposal, since it is an advantage for Munich (save costs, create yet more attractiveness in the open source community) and for CAcert (probably one „big shot“ for the inclusion status).
