The help page for certutil emphasizes that "certutil -C" takes a BINARY cert request. It doesn't mention that you can specify the "-a" flag to accept an ASCII cert request, which is what most people have anyway.
Changed the QA contact to Bishakha.
Changed the component to Tools.
Changed the component back to Documentation. I am not myself today.
Actually I think tools was the right component, since the help page is in the tool itself.

Comment on attachment 271165 [details] [diff] [review] Add documentation sure, we can make this change. But it's reaally time for someone to overhaul certutil's help/usage messages to eliminate all the duplication of information about common options.
Thanks for the quick review, Nelson. The consolidation should be done in a separate bug. I checked this in to the tip. Checking in certutil.c; /cvsroot/mozilla/security/nss/cmd/certutil/certutil.c,v <-- certutil.c new revision: 1.113; previous revision: 1.112 done
